I considered the topic for an argument paper between the grant programs of a federal welfare system and college tuition, however I got down to the topic Ďdrug testing for welfare recipientsí after I got the feedback from professor. Today, I have just found out that there is one girl in class doing the same topic. But I decide to go on since I have already half done my research.

I donít think drug testing for welfare recipients is good idea. Counterpart expects that the drug testing will contribute to stop the cycle of drug abuse. But the drug testing did not contribute much to restrain the drug abuse cycle. Many Drugs stay in the system from 2 to 4 days, although chronic use of marijuana can stay in the system for 3 to 4 weeks or longer after the last use. The longest drug stay in the system is marijuana which stays for 1 or 2 months on the chronic users. They are not that long and abusers could choose heroine instead marijuana which only stays 2 days in system. I cite the chart of detection time in urine according to an individual drug on the popular online site for drugs information. It Costs more money than the savings by carrying it out. It needs space, personnel and time. It is better to put those money into either increasing a welfare budget so that the poor currently ruled out can get helped or the federal drug treatment facilities. I use the pilot project result and economistís report to support it. Welfare drug testing violates both the individual's constitutional right to privacy and the Fourth Amendment's protections against unreasonable search and seizure. I cited a constitutional law book.

The greatest challenge for me writing the argument paper is grammar, as the professor has kept pointing out from the first paper. Out of many grammar problems, putting an article before the noun is a main problem. It is really confusing, I thought you put article when the noun is singular and countable. But it seems people uses it before every noun. I made an appointment on writing center, I hope they give me real help on the grammar.
