Drug-testing-welfare-recipients

 

A new law in Mississippi will take effect on July 1st that will require those who seek government assistant to be drug tested. The law will require applicants to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program to answer a questionnaire evaluating their likelihood of substance abuse. If they are deemed to be at risk, they will have to take a drug test, and a positive test result will require them to undergo treatment for substance abuse. A second positive test will keep them Last week, Mississippi’s state Senate passed a bill to drug test some welfare recipients after it passed the House earlier this year.
