Utah drug testing for welfare recipients results in 12, that’s right TWELVE subjects testing positive for drugs (again, DOES NOT INCLUDE ALCOHOL, but I digress) and 4718 testing negative. ONLY TWELVE TESTING POSITIVE. That bears repeating.
I feel like Franchesca Ramsey says it best here, “I wonder what Utah thought they’d find when they implemented mandatory drug testing for welfare recipients? I doubt this is it. The moral of the story? I’d say the “sketchy drug addict” narrative that continues to be assigned to people on government assistance isn’t really that accurate … or fair.”
