the only thing i dont like about this is what about the drug users who have a legal prescription and abuse it? if you had surgery or been in any kind of accident it's not hard to get pain pills legally for the rest of your life. then you can abuse them all you want as long as you dont get caught. same thing with medical marijuana except it's not a prescription. it's considered an herbal remedy with doctors recommendaton. will these doctors/politicians ever learn?

Drug users/abusers will lose their taxpayer supported drug habits !

Have you ever heard or read of something so SILLY ?

The big box stores in Escanaba have exhausted their supply of potential workers

because what miscreants remain in the delta county area,

and apply for work….

can’t pass a simple urine test !

Time to save taxpayers some money and force these boys, girls, mothers and fathers…

to make a choice …

like the rest of us:


What a Shame.
