Unemployed Drug Users in Georgia Risk Benefits....FROM APPLYING FOR JOBS!
State is using 'employers' as RATFINKS and TATTLE-TAILS!!


Georgians who fail a drug test while trying to get a job could lose their unemployment benefits under a new policy being quietly implemented by the state's Labor Department.

The agency isn't forcing everyone who collects jobless benefits to take a drug test. Instead, officials are asking businesses and the public to essentially rat out people who fail a drug test required to apply for a job.

It's a novel strategy, in part because the policy took effect without needing buy-in from lawmakers.

Yes. If they stop looking for work, they're no longer "unemployed".

Ok, I'll just break it down in true GLP fashion.

The marijuana causes the brain to become less "reptilian" if you will. Less violent and aggressive, less unstable and impressionable.

Literally, that's it.

What did you expect some big medical accident to happen if you smoked marijuana?

Ok..., then why is no one dead, hurt, upside down, exploded, on fire, etc etc, unless bad people who want to sell their stuff instead (which will kill you, put you in a coma, cause you to fight, etc etc)? Because it's not only harmless.

It is a healing plant, the most powerful healing plant on the planet.

Yet.....so it not only doesn't hurt people.

But it actually heals them?

Oh ok, so we should all eat our own shit and drink our own piss. That makes sense in life.

Well if u want a job u shouldn't be wasting taxpayer money doing drugs. I mean, if you're a drugged out loser then you're not qualified to even hold down a job becuase the employer knows you're already gonna miss work. so therefore you're a detriment to society and should be abolished.

IMHO, I think this is a good idea. However, I can see people just giving up looking for a job just from this.

I would also like to add, if you need a drug test to get a job that you sure as should get one to get any kind of benefits such as food stamps, cash assistance, etc. huffy

^ ^ Wake up wake up to the post above. The hoops are not hoops, they are loss of power rings, and the benefits are not benefits they are your life that they dangle in front of you and say "I COMMAND YOU OR ELSE" and everyone is either scared or not.

There is no "Hoops", to believe that. Would be to believe that this is actually the way it is.

But this is not even the way it is, if you were to ALL go through this hooping process, get legit, etc, there would be no change in the world, except everything natural and wholesome would continue to burn, plummet, and run out or convert to poison. That is the "HOOPS", so no, there are no actual hoops.

Just as there are no actual "BENEFITS", it's like saying to a dog, "I'll let you release pee from your bladder so it doesn't explode and kill you or I beat you to death in this house for it,.....if you jump through these hoops because you're still a sovereign being and so am I, to make you do this."

No.

There's either satan telling you to do something that God never intended or planned directly (do what you want). Or

A human living under the truth and for the truth, living naturally, following their own instinct, and therefore not eating and drinking their own piss and shit, but making the world a better place for all.

See, it's that all of those people go, "oh, it's ok, I'm just doing something with my life, I'm just jumping through hoops even though I wouldn't know how to do it unless someone showed and told me, it's what I want to do!"

No... you are confused, scared, and helpless, I know this because if you transformed into JESUS CHRIST TERMINATOR, you would calmly be strung up. And hanged until your insides stopped trying to feed your brain oxygen.

That's simply how it works.

You are all slaves at the end your society who think they are superstar billionaires celebs of the world, doing nice things and looking cool on tv.

In reality, the world stopped, drooled a little in wondering how an entire nation could be so stupid, and now hopes you will destroy yourselves before it's too late for the universe.


Don't like what that says?

Wake up.

You are on many drugs right now, to even sit here and say and think what you do, there is a list of drugs you are required to be on to short circuit your brain and body.


I mean, if you're a drugged out loser then you're not qualified to even hold down a job becuase the employer knows you're already gonna miss work.

If you are a drugged out loser, you should not be giving advice, on anything but being a drugged out loser, which is what you are giving advice on.

so therefore you're a detriment to society and should be abolished.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 938273

No, so there fore you fixed your own situation, you either die a slave or wake up and make a stand.

And yes, the only drugs in existence, the only one's even relevant to what you're talking about are the very one's you're own.

Because we all know.....being completely sane, and being completely emotionally balanced, causes one to make decision that have no basis in reality and actually make the system worse than introduce any positive change.

For instance, the guy above won't let a medical marijuana patient smoke a joint, but he will shoot them full of vaccines, hormones, preservatives, pesticides, additives, antibiotics, stimulants, sleeping pills, mood adjusters, anti-depressants, alcohol and tobacco, which we all know kill everyone.

Simply put, they kill everyone they come in contact with.


And we all know marijuana heals, and makes one more relaxed and capable of clear thought.

If the person is making bad decisions, it is because they are misinformed. If they are sedated or altered, it is because of man made chemical drugs which kill the brain and body

I've seen people who smoke more than 1 or 2 joints a week. Don't BS me ok? you know you smoke more than that, you're a user who smokes every day. and no, you're not qualified to hold down a job until you can clean up your fucking act.
You should lose all benefits and welfare, foodstamps, etc... until you can clean up your own act. Otherwise, you won't get anywhere in life if u do not willingly contribute to the society in which you live. It is wrong for others to support your worthless ass while you take advantage of said benefits without earning them first.

Another concerning excerpt...

To receive unemployment, people must not only be actively seeking work, but must also make themselves able and available to work any job. Failing a drug test, or even refusing to take one, could be interpreted as a violation of those terms — making Georgia's policy permissible under federal law.

Work any job, even if you DIDN'T apply for it?

Kinda sounds like a precursor for the 'DRAFT'...DEBTORS SLAVERY! Digging ditches during the Great Depression will seem like a 'dream job' when you find out what is in store for the New Slave Herd! Remember, Chinese slaves were brought to America to BUILD OUR RAIROAD SYSTEM...wonder if China needs anything built CHEAP?

Are you a fucking complete piece of shit idiot?

CARL FUCKING SAGAN SMOKED POT.

MOST OF THE GREAT SOCIETY CHANGERS WERE IN TUNE WITH NATURE

You are a completely shit yourself blind idiot retard if you blame someone's inefficiency on marijuana.

Just think.

Not only is that a complete bogus bullshit, satanic, brain drain, racist, ignorant, fucking idiotic lie started by the drug war in the early 1900's (obviously any one who does 2 seconds of research realizes that), but it doesn't even make sense.

Wouldn't you think that at least one of those medical marijuana patients would suffer? Wouldn't at least one person who smoked an OUNCE of the stuff a day, all of the sudden go brain dead and fall down the stairs or something?

No!

It doesn't happen!

Yet alcohol and tobacco do worse, and oh look, they are the one's who spawned dare, to get kids away from natural healing herbs.

That's right, they want your kids dead on their addicting chemicals that change their brain by making them violent instead of in tune and creative like all those successful artists.

Hell, YOUR PRESIDENT (almost) SMOKED MARIJUANA. Dumbass.

Make a choice, a paycheck/unemployment check OR your drugs. Sometimes you can't have both.

273 you just don't have a clue! Even crackheads need a job! If you don't think the crackhead will go out there and bust his tail to get money, the honest way, for his drugs, then you might be wrong! Whether or not someone can do the job while high, depends on the job. Being high, on pot, isn't going to effect someone mowing grass or picking butterbeans all day long too badly and might even make the day a little more tolerable!

When you don't allow someone to work then they have to go out and steal just to have something to eat!
