Alot of local U buy we fry food places around Lansing take EBT. They sell you the food "uncooked" charged on your EBT, then you give them $1 to fry it up. If you pay with cash in these establisments your the minority. You really don't know how bad the system is being abused until you actually live in the ghetto
Heck, cottage in now takes EBT. I have seen signs on the local KFC excepting EBT, not sure how they swing that but nobody seems to care, especially when you can go to the local corner store/clothing store/hair care place and buy crack and a hooker. I lived by a little caesars and everytime I would order from there, I would get asked by the guys outside if I needed anything? we got girls, drugs blah blah blah. Cops in lansing do not care, it has been growing on for years.
Wow that was a rant
