Ex-Drug Offenders that have paid in full the price of their mistake are still paying everyday for the rest of their lives. Being Shunned from Seeking Housing Help, Food Stamps, Job Discrimination even though they are well educated with competitive skills. I am speaking about ex-drug offenders that have not been drug re-offended in the last 5 (five) to 10(ten) years. There are no State or Federal Help for the Ex-Drug Offender at all. Here is another Big WHY is a Sexual Offender upon release is openly helped with Food Stamps, Housing From State and Federal HUD Homes, offered readily open job positions, training for job placement, all the while with the total support of State and Federal Help for the Sexual Offender and The ex-drug offender whom has not re-offended is not given a chance to receive any food stamps, housing help, fair and non discriminating job and home opportunities. I believe that The State Of Texas Should Open The Door to help the Non-Repeat Drug Offender with the Food Stamps, Housing Help, and Non*Discrimination of Job Opportunities to Ex*Drug Offenders, by Using Urinary Tests, Blood Tests, every 6 (six) months then after a proven 5 (five) year history of stable non street drugs usage continue to offer ex-drug offenders their civil rights to maintain  their rights  to equal economic help just like every citizen in the United States Of America. No One is above or below making mistakes, we are human yet Texas along with several other states bury and disgrace first and last time ex-drug offenders. It Is with an honest question as to why Sexual Offenders whom have proven there is no cure for their disease receives State and Federal Help, while ex-drug offenders have no jobs, no food stamp, no educational help, and only receive Narcotic Anon Meetings where without jobs, food, housing, counseling, still at the end of the day are without any help that should be shared equally as the Sexual Offenders receive. Truth be known Sexual Offenders Are The Highest Rated Re-Offenders time and time again, even thought they receive all The State And Federal Help That Is Out Right Denied To Ex Drug Offenders. We Want Equal Rights To Help Ex-Drug Offenders with State And Federal Help Today, It Will Prove That Ex-Drug Offenders Will Prove Confidence To Be A Positive Re-entry into Society, instead of the Disgusted and despised offenders they are made out to be. Florida has a Urinary Test in place for All Offenders seeking Food Stamps and Housing Help, Along with several other states that offer the same Urinary Tests to help ex-offenders and all citizens receive economic help, I believe The State Of Texas should show the same civil rights to all that have paid their price in full for their mistakes. I believe people will sign this petition for the fairness of the State of Texas Civil Rights Laws to be updated immediately.

Signed,
