  •  Completely unnecessary with unemployment (6+ / 0-)

    I am a pot smoker that was drawing unemployment until the economy improved & I found a job.

    Most decent jobs want to drug test their applicants anyway, so why waste government money on testing those on unemployment.  
    Anybody with half a brain will either quit until they find a job (like I did), or figure out how to beat the test (like many, many others).

    Besides, It's called unemployment INSURANCE.  We've all paid into the system, so it's not like someone collecting "unenjoyment" is totally sponging off the government teat.
