There are enough people who need our social programs, that don't have drug problems. Give the money to them.

Why do you feel it is necessary to support people who CHOOSE to do drugs instead of getting a job? I think that you have a backward idea of what is right.

I am not a conservative, so don't use that argument against me, either. I am all for social programs to help those who need it. But not for those who chose to get high instead of raising their kids, or going to work. If you were high all day at your job, would your boss still give you a check, or would you still have a job? If he/she would, then I am sure to see a failing business. If we give welfare recipients a lower standard than the rest of us, what are we teaching them? Rewarding them for breaking the law?

Most "welfare" these days is in the form of aid to dependent children. Whatever the shortcomings of the parents, Draconian take-aways will hurt those innocent kids.
