Greens challenge drug testing for welfare recipients (video)

The gov in it's budget has reached a new low. They want to drug test welfare recipients before they get any money from Centrelink. Mind boggling.

They're also removing drug dependency as a reason to be on sickness benefits. One wonders at the consequences of this policy if implemented. Drug dependent people cut off from welfare money turning to crime to support their habit? 

The Greens are seeking legal advice on whether drug testing is even legal. You can sign your name to support them here.
