Those buying $100 worth of food for $50 cash are often low income but above limits to receive food card themselves, this gives them more cigarette and beer money. The seller can now give their 8 yr old a cell phone. Our system is so severely abused. I dont think they even check ID for food cards. They need to be signed and check the signature.
