Public assistance drug testing

Prior to the new session of the Utah Legislature, I sent an email to Rep. Doug Sagers and Utah Speaker of the House Gregory Hughes regarding drug testing for all individuals receiving and applying for public assistance. My point was, and is, anyone in today’s job market looking for employment is subject to pre-employment drug testing, as well as random drug testing after being hired.

You can’t go to work for the state, fed, major local contractors, banks, etc., without drug testing. But you can receive public assistance paid for by local, state and federal tax dollars supplied by drug-tested, gainfully employed, voting citizens. See the problem? If you can’t, I’m sure many registered citizen voters who again put you back in office do.
