I agree though, "Illegal drug users, and total boozers, and child beaters, and wife beaters, and illegal aliens, Terrorists, Perverts, and, and.. Tobacco Chewers, smokers, and spitters shouldn't get JOBLESS benefits.. (Nicotine being a terrible drug, poison such as it is.. )

How about we just say, "NOBODY" should get Jobless, "benefits".. there should be NO BENEFIT to not having a job.. Compensation!... perhaps.. but only for BASIC needs.. Shelve the Wants and DESIRES. You want Cable TV... GET A JOB!

"job applicants who fail a drug test from a prospective employer or refuse to take one for a valid reason would face having their jobless benefits cut."

Let me see if I understand this, you go in for a job Interview and the boss hands you a cup and says, 'Give us a donation".. You say, "Hardly that".. and you get your 'Unemployment Benefits' cut? laugh, laugh. What country is this?... It's sure looking like a Communist, Socialist one with stuff like this coming down the pipe.. Only , "Illegal Drugs" are being tested for?.. what about the Drunkard holding a quart of Vodka all during the Interview.. not a problem?... Laws and attempts at this kind of 'stuff' makes me laugh and laugh.. It's not the answer to the Jealous nuts trying to deny anything to anyone..

Why don't you post your name on the article? Or is this editorial the opinion of every single person working at Daily Press?
