In 2014 the government denied a proposal to subject welfare recipients to drug testing. Proponents including Liberal-National Party MP George Christensen argued that anyone receiving taxpayer funded benefits should be able to demonstrate that they are drug-free. Opponents, including Greens MP Adam Bandt, argued that if welfare recipients were subject to testing MPs should be as well.
No, however people who are working for the government and making important decisions like doctors, nurses, teachers, bus drivers, politicians, etc... should be tested. Everyone being tested should be allowed a right to challenge the test results and this should include a free retest that is done by an independent lab without any penalty
