New Bill Will Force Politicians to Get Drug Tested

We previously reported that the majority of Americans support drug testing politicians. But at the end of last year, that’s exactly what was proposed by lawmakers in West Virginia.
Politicians had previously unveiled a bill to drug test applicants for the state’s welfare program.

Advocates of such legislation claim that they will save money by getting those “evil drug users off of the government doll, thereby reducing the expense of the welfare system.”
All sounds great, but there was only one problem… It doesn’t work.
As we reported last year, where these tests have been instituted, only a tiny percentage of applicants were disqualified. This proved to be a monumental waste of tax-payer dollars, costing twice the money that it saved.
