Judd McMillan: “Everyone Needs to Pass a Drug Test — Except Me”

State legislator Judd McMillan (R—Piss Fetish) introduced a bill in the Indiana legislature which would require all recipients of government aid to pass a drug test in order to qualify.  It’s not yet known whether Judd McMillan would be personally watching while each urine test is administered.

Anyway, the bill was modified by Rep. Ryan Dvorak.  Dvorak expanded the bill to include EVERYONE who receives money from the government.  And this new expanded wording includes Indiana legislators.

After his bill was modified, Judd “Golden Showers” McMillan promptly withdrew it.  Regarding McMillan’s blatant double standard, Ryan Dvorak said:

“After it passed, Rep. McMillan got pretty upset and pulled his bill. If anything, I think it points out some of the hypocrisy. If we’re going to impose standards on drug testing, then it should apply to everybody who receives government money.”

Amen.

Even if they work for it?

I know someone who is on Social Services and she buys $150.00 worth of weed every month. Like the 8 prescriptions she gets for free isn't enough.

Jess: Sorry, your comment ended up in the spam folder for some reason. I copied it from my gmail:

"Hoisted on their own petard doesn't work out so well for these boneheads does it. Seems to me ALEC is pushing a lot of this stuff through many state houses, probably to keep people distracted from the real issues of the day.

Um dumbass Lisa( I know everyone, it's kinda redundant, but bear with me) even with a scrip for weed you still pay for it, so your little I know someone that knows someone that knows of someone fails on so many levels. You REALLY have to start looking into your own information so we don't have to keep correcting your dumb ass with facts only a click away. I smoke myself and it works way better then prescription pain meds to calm my nerves. Plus I am not filling the coffers of big pharmaceutical companies that rip people off. I am contributing to a local economy here in California.
Very first sentence from my link

"People who qualify for medical marijuana prescriptions frequently report substituting the substance for their other prescription medications."
Further along in the article I linked to...

"About 75% had health insurance that covered prescriptions. Even so, “they are still opting to utilize medical cannabis, which is not covered by insurance,” Dr. Reiman said."

Wow. This guy is a real piece of work.

The military and federal civil servants have been subject to random, repeated drug testing for decades (some are subject to random polygraph tests too). State and federal congressmen, as well as those in Executive & Legislative positions of gov't, should most definitely be subject to drug tests, just as they should be subject to every fucking law we regular citizens are.

Only a dumb broad like you would figure that part-time slouches like Indiana Rushpubliscum legislators "work for it." Thus proving that you are just too damned dumb to leave the kitchen.

I guess you missed the part about McMillan's intent to reintroduce the bill today to include testing for lawmakers. The amendment as written was sure to get the law struck down as unconstitutional.

Tom my point is where does someone get 150.00 to pay for it when it
works better why waste taxpayer money on all the other prescriptions?
Not to mention her frequent trips to Atlantic City,which she miraculously feels good when it's time to go.
It's not a friend of a friend,it's my direct friend. I smoke too believe it or not. Works great for migraines and it's safer than prescription drugs.
She takes it for anxiety too but she also gets free Xanax,Lyrica,•Naproxen,Oxycodon,and
Depo-Povera.
Oh and she smokes 2 packs of cigarettes a day @ 10.00 per pack



Glad though Tom you are contributing to your local economy but I don't think there's much hope for your welfare state.

@Lisa... once again fails on reading comprehension. Tom starts out right there with JESS, Sorry your comment ended up in the spam folder for some reason.
Maybe you need to not smoke weed if it fucks you up this badly. Some of us can deal and then there are people like you. Oh and let's not get all into which states are welfare states shall we, coz you will find most of the welfare states are republican leaning ones. I know you don't like looking but trust me on that one.

Jess: No, sorry but Lisa is right. People who voted for Obama just want to lie around all day and get free stuff :)

Interesting link. Thanks.

Carlos: I'm totally in favor of legislative and executive personnel being required to take drug tests. It might explain some of the addled "reasoning" behind some of their actions; or lack thereof.

JR: Whatever "work" that asshole legislator is actually doing, the money he gets from taxpayers amounts to welfare.

Anonymous: I didn't miss it. But I'm sure his original intent was to not include legislators. Now that the story has made the news, he has to save face by reintroducing the bill.

I found this little nugget while doing some research on nature's bounty and the ALEC inspired drug testing legislation from not really shocking, republicans. Color me not really surprised.

Jess: Rick Scott easily rivals Newt Gingrich or Judd McMillan in terms of "do as I say not as I do."

Or they are rich and can afford to spread it around.
