I’m calling in reference to the bill calling for mandatory drug tests for welfare recipients. I’ve worked for 35 years, and for the last 25 years I have been required to take random drug screens. I don’t see that as discrimination against anybody if they are good enough to spend my money, they are good enough to take the same tests I do. Editor’s note: The House of Delegates has tabled the proposed bill until the 2013 session because of questions about how to pay for the drug-testing program.
