Word on the Street for June 29-July 6

“I think so because some of them will get the help and spend it on things such as illegal drugs.”

“It depends on a lot of things, their age, etc. Maybe a profile could be taken because some who are elderly would only be taking medications while some who are younger may abuse the system and buy illegal drugs. It is a big question. I would be for profiling those who need help.”

“I don’t want my hard-earned money to go to people who abuse drugs and alcohol and especially so if they are getting welfare.”

Clark Rhodes

“Definitely … because I don’t think they should get public assistance if they take illegal drugs.”

Peggie Halvorsen

“Yes I do without exception think they should have to take a drug test. Those who take legal medications should not be penalized though.”
