    Bring it on! This is LONG overdue! Thank you Gov. McDonnell & Republicans that will make positive Change not Empty Promises of Hope & Change which has equaled Rope & Chains!

    I agree with everyone. Its our taxes that are going to help pay for these people to have welfare. Its only right to drug test them. This should have been a bill long ago and maybe we wont be so far in debt with other countries.

    How can it be offensive when we all have to take drug tests to get jobs

    If I have to drug test to keep my job to support my family then I think people who receive any kind of welfare should be forced to drug test to keep their benefits!!!!

    I have to take a drug test to get a job & WORK for my money, why shouldn't anybody applying for free assistance have to take one?

    Most working folks today have to undergo random drug testing to keep their jobs. Welfare recipients should be required to do the same.

    It offends the dignity of those receiving welfare....WELL TOO BAD. There are lots of us who work for a living and are drug tested, should we be offended too, I don't see any laws out there for the workers who are tested. We figure, if you have nothing to hide......take the silly test and quit whining.
