    Well that's good then! At least you have tried! It didn't come across that way with your original comment that's all. Good on you for trying though.

    Without government testing....there s no way to prove he takes drugs so he gets away with being off his face and calling it 'anti social' = can't work= gets the pension

    Oh god don't refer to tax dollars and welfare payments in this thread, if you read back a few pages you'll see I made reference to my dislike for precious tax dollars being spent on drugs and I got a fair bit of flack for it!

    Well if you don't think it's your problem or worthy of reporting, why whinge?

    You do realise drug use can cause anti-social behaviours, right?
    Many people do go on the disability pension because of drug addiction.

    Some people must be so proud and happy to see threads like this. They succeeded in turning middle-low classes against themselves.

    The true abusers of the systems have free reins and can quietly keep getting richer and richer.

    If you know someone is breaking the law, you report it to the police. If they are defrauding centrelink- you report it to centrelink. Being on welfare and taking drugs isn't fraud. It sounds like the person you've described has a problem.

    Ffs, so sick of having to defend myself tonight. I've done all I can thanks and without drug testing nothing can be proven. OKAY?

    I wouldn't care about having to be drug tested, i can see how it would be humiliating or demoralising for some but it would be something i would happily except has what i had to do. Hubby gets randomly drug and alcohol tested at work. Does he love doing it? Nope does he do it so he can continue to provide for his family? Yes. So although i can see both sides. I personally would have no issues with being drug tested.
