Stop treating drug abuse as a crime and treat it as a disease. Provide therapy that does NOT profit big pharmaceutical companies.

The test should be ultimately up to the person, but it should not affect welfare as it is basic and inhumane to revoke such rights especially if a person is abusing harmful substances. A test should be recommended and the government could lower taxing on homeopathic medicine if they should need to reduce welfare funding due to it costing excessive amounts.

Absolutely not. Irrevalent in any circumstances. Welfare IS ALREADY a prison sentence almost impossible to get out of.
All rents are more than what welfare gives in a month.
And stop criminalizing prostitution and low income drug dealers while we're at it as well.
This is what "This is a free country" means.
And our water is gold to other countries by the way. Need I have to remind you of what life in canada after ww3 will look like?

It's funny how on one hand Grass is legal, the authorities want to create safe spots where users of hardcore drugs can meet up and fill their arms up, if ya do that why not just buy the Coke or the heroin/Fentanyl etc and give it to them. If there's no market for it it will become really cheap to buy and give it away for free. Let them choose whether to live life or die. But No they shouldn't be forced to be tested, I think most people would know a junkie or a crackhead or a Fentanyl user if we saw one. And would I spend my money on one of those pens.... not a chance in hell!

Yes, but a different financial program should be given to those who test positive.

@96RP2HBfrom Ontario  answered…1mo

Yes, but only look for drugs that can cause you to not be a productive member of society

@95YV2DZfrom British Columbia  answered…2mos

No, not only is this a waste of time and money, but it ignores the biopsychosocial reasons for substance use.

No, allow this to be voluntary testing. Not all welfare recipients are drug users or abusers.

@92JXK3J from New York answered…5mos

Yes, but only to establish why they need welfare. If they have a criminal record and aren't taking them because they're stressed about providing for their family, arrest them. Otherwise, provide treatment and ensure that welfare doesn't go towards buying booze or drugs.

Also ensure that recipients are honest about themselves and don't lie.

No, abolish Welfare and replace it with a living wage standard income. The government should not drug test the public.

@92YHQCV from California answered…6mos

No, only if they have a criminal history related to drug abuse, plus welfare recipients should provide treatment for those who tested positive for drugs

@9334YP3 answered…7mos

Welfare should be abolished entirely and replaced by voluntary charity. It is up to each charity whether or not they wish to perform drug tests.

@92S34SB from California answered…7mos

Yes, but give them a three strikes rule. Send them to treatment so they can get off the drugs, but if they keep abusing drugs and they violate the three strikes rule. Terminate their benefits.

@92RTRZZfrom Ontario  answered…7mos

Yes, but cease benefits for positive testing individuals and provide treatment.

@92JJNYMfrom Ontario  answered…7mos

No, this won't solve any problems. We should end the current welfare programs which keep people stuck in the system, and move towards a universal basic income program that encourages people to better themselves.
