I agree with many that it seems fair to have people on unemployment insurance drug tested, since working Americans are also tested. However, the cost of drug testing many individuals on unemployment insurance is substantial, considering the low number of positive drug tests found. States will spend thousands of dollars to find only a few people using drugs. Furthermore, people who are unemployed are already facing barriers to employment.... I would perhaps support drug testing people on unemployment insurance if there were means of rehabilitating these people, instead of only punitive measures. Drug testing is a demoralizing for most people, and I personally don’t think employers should drug test either, especially if that person is doing their job well.
