Utah Spent $30k on Drug Testing To Catch 12 Drug Users On Welfare Benefit

See on Scoop.itDrugs, Society, Human Rights & Justice

Utah is the latest state to find that drug testing welfare recipients comes with high costs and few results.

Julian Buchanan‘s insight:

Another example of drug policy that isn’t based upon scientific evidence or indeed sound rationale.

Drug testing is superb – for making money for drug testing companies.
