Some people are going to say it's a credit card how can they use it to buy drugs. Well the simplest way is this you go to the drug dealer and you ask this I have a food stamps card that's worth let's say 500 bucks what food products do you need that I can get for you with this card in trade for the drugs I want. See my point it is a barter system. So instead of buying food for themselves or their children they are getting their drugs and abusing the system and we the taxpayer. Stuff like this has been going on since the inception of this program going back to my own life when my family was on food stamps for a short time my mother was approached more than once to trade her food stamps for cash.
I also believe that most honest folks who need food stamps for a hard spot in life would not care one way or the other about taking a drug test to get them. Remember originally welfare and food stamps were not meant to be a lifestyle but just something to help people over a rough spot in their lives.
