What a fucked up country we live in.
This was a regular occurrence at the Kroger in Flint on Corruna Rd 99-03. Was also always propositioned in the parking lot for someone to buy $100 worth of groceries for $50 cash. I usually told them no thanks, I paid for the $100 to begin with. Good thing I never drove my own vehicle to get groceries

Try working as a cashier for 4 years, about 50 or so people would come in every couple weeks, and would do one of two things; 1) By a shit ton of chips, cart full of pop (literally), and banquets or 2) by $2-$5 worth of junk food, get $100 cash back and then come back in an hour later and purchase a couple 30 pks, and a 1/5 or two...with the same demoniation of $100 that you handed them an hour prior

Either a) there are stores/distribution centers that are approved to sell price controlled, limited selection items to people on assistance or b) stores that accept assistance cards get restricted farther on what they can sell using the cards, like fruits, veggies, milk, bread, cheese, hamburger, not lobster, soda, etc...
Look at it from the store point of view, if you owned a grocery store would you give up the millions you make on EBT?

Fuck the store's point of view. I'm looking at the tax payer's point of view.

People get cash on their EBT to pay for taxable items, such as detergent and and toilet paper. Regular EBT only will only pay for non-taxable items, no hot food items though, deli lunch, or rotisserie chicken for example

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

They also get cash Benifits on the same card. The cash can be used for auto parts if your junk brakes. It's used like a debit card. I only know because my niece is disabled and lived with us for a while so we had to use her card. It's a little embarrassing or at least it was for me.

I would be a little embarrassed myself. Seems the people around where I grew up flash and flaunt EBT cards like its a trophy. I swear the Krogers on the south side of Lansing receives most it revenue from bridge cards
