Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin has signed off on a new standard for food stamps recipients, job training and unemployment benefits; all those who receive these benefits must be tested for illegal drugs.

When Walker launched his presidential campaign, he championed his drug testing program as one of the bullet points presented to his potential national constituents.


“In Wisconsin, we enacted a program that says that adults who are able to work must be enrolled in one of our job training programs before they can get a welfare check. Now, as of the budget I just signed, we are also making sure they can take a drug test.”

The policy will be implemented in Wisconsin beginning on November 9.
