The program has now been in place for three months and just four people, less than one-half of a percent of all applicants, tested positive. In the general population, the rate of drug use is 9.4%.
In 2015, West Virginia passed legislation requiring some applicants for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) to submit to drug testing. The state estimated that over the first year, the program would identify 390 people as drug users at a cost of $50,000.
Not all applicants take the test. Courts have required such testing to be based on reasonable suspicion, so those applying for TANF are required to fill out a questionnaire designed to flag potential users. 107 applicants were drug tested.
West Virginia’s experience mirrors those of other states who have implemented similar programs. ThinkProgress reviewed the impact of programs in 13 states last year:
The program was derided by substance abuse experts as counterproductive. “[T]he Legislature wants to punish people for having a medical condition. The way to punish them is to take away those benefits. You’re further destabilizing a family that’s already at risk,” Kim Miller, an addiction treatment specialist, told the West Virginia Gazette Mail.
All told, these 13 states tested 2,826 people out of about 250,000 applicants and recipients in 2016. Of those tested, just 369 came back positive. In four states, drug testing uncovered exactly zero positive tests for the whole year. The positive drug test rate out of all applicants, in states where people tested positive, ranged from 0.07 percent in Arkansas to 2.14 percent in Utah; none of them came anywhere close to the national drug use rate of 9.4 percent for the general population.
“We’re going to tear them apart piece by piece and search each pile thoroughly and make sure there’s nobody in there,” Henzgen said.
Each member of his team is given a section and must reduce any piles to ground level.
Crews dug away at masses of mud, boulders and debris with earth-moving machines and shovels Saturday in a California town ravaged by mudslides, hoping to find seven people still missing in a disaster that has already claimed at least 18 lives.
The so-called Thomas fire, which led to the floods, was declared fully contained Friday. It erupted Dec. 4 in Ventura County and destroyed more than 1,000 structures as it swept through the city of Ventura and then threatened Carpinteria, Summerland and Santa Barbara. At 440 square miles, it became the largest wildfire in California records.
Completely taken aback by the hopeful’s sultry tones and powerful voice, Olly slammed his buzzer before struggling to contain himself in his seat.
The ITV reality series aired its second episode tonight, but the first segment flew by so quickly that fans were left crest-fallen when the first advert break had already rolled around after just 12 minutes.
One person wrote: “One act in and we go to commercial. F**k sake. #TheVoiceUK.”
“Twenty minutes in and we’ve heard one audition. At this rate the final will be around Christmas! #TheVoiceUK,” another added.
As Ivy continued to flirt and tell the presenter that she “wanted him”, Olly even forgot his own name before managing to direct the starlet’s gaze towards the base of his seat.
Kade achieved four turns from the judging panel and decided on the hugely-successful music producer will.i.am to be his mentor, but the all-too-brief performance had fans racing to Twitter to complain.
To make matters worse, viewers were only treated to one act and the judges chatting about the evening before they were forced to sit through commercials for another five minutes.
A third asked: “One song one ad break – is this the way it’s gonna be? #TheVoiceUK,” followed by: “So #TheVoiceUK has been on 18 minutes and so far we’ve had one singer…”
Later, the episode saw 34-year-old singer Olly get hot-under-the-collar from sizzling female contestant Ivy Paige.
Wijnaldum admits Liverpool will miss Coutinho but argues any team would. “Every team would miss a player of that quality. He was one of the best players we had in the team but as a person he was even better,” the 27-year-old says. “He wanted to go to his dream club and as players we are all happy for him because he is such a good guy. He was never arrogant, you never heard him say: ‘I am the best,’ or anything like that. Phil was always a guy who listened to the coaching and worked with the team. We all enjoyed playing with him. It is sad he didn’t stay, because with Phil in the team of course we were better, but in the end you have to be happy that he made the move that meant so much to him.”
“But you can’t blame luck or a red card for losing by five goals. We did a few things wrong and City showed their quality. Hopefully when we meet at Anfield it will stay 11 v 11 and that way we will have more of a chance.”
“Week in, week out they have good performances and, even if they are not quite at their best, they still manage to win. They don’t give games away.”
Georginio Wijnaldum scores the winner against Manchester City at Anfield last season.
