New bill would require drug testing of poor people

A new bill has been introduced in Tennessee by Senator Burchett that would require drug testing for new welfare recipients. The bill proposes that the Department of Human Services test all new applicants for drug use, before they can be placed on public assistance. The bill does not appear to make any allowances for the children of these "drug users". I suppose they will just have to go hungry.
