It IS tricky, because I'm sure just as many recipients are abusing their foodies to get alcohol. They should test for alcohol too then. And maybe remove the marijuana screening from the testing, since it's becoming legal in so many areas, and stays in one's system much longer than other drugs.

And let's not forget that those folks BUYING the food stamps off the recipients are breaking the law too...not to mention taking the food out of children's mouths.

The food stamp program is messed up. My unemployed single daughter was getting them for a couple years, until recently, because of a regulation change. Her babysitting income does not pay minimum wage, otherwise she would qualify. But now she's pregnant and sure could use the food stamps. She will be eligible after her child is born, but needs the nutrition NOW. Thank goodness for commods!! And the food bank!
