Utah Drug Testing For Welfare Recipients Did Not Go As Hoped

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.”
