H&W Starts Drug Abuse Study

An  official with Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (DHW) confirmed Tuesday that the department has started work on a controversial drug abuser study commissioned earlier in the year by state lawmakers.  The study, the official confirmed, will likely be completed well before the start of the 2011 legislative session, the date by which lawmakers ordered the study be concluded. ... Officials with the department, Shanahan said, will evaluate if there would be any benefit to the state through removing reoccurring drug offenders from public assistance payments like Medicaid or food stamps/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter.

Question: Do you support this study?
