See 0011.27.03 (Drug Felons).
A person applying for or receiving SNAP who admits in writing on the CAF that he/she committed and was convicted of a drug felony within 10 years from the date of application or recertification, is subject to random drug testing as a condition of continued eligibility. This also applies if the county agency has other reliable verified documentation supporting its position about a unit member's drug conviction that was committed within 10 years from the date of application or recertification.
DHS suggests that county agencies coordinate efforts with local probation or court services to establish procedures and share costs of random drug testing for these clients.
If the client fails a drug test, or the county is informed by a probation officer or other official entity that the client has failed a drug test, he/she is subject to the following sanctions:

Categorical SNAP eligibility does NOT exist for a unit member that becomes ineligible due to failing the 2nd drug test. If there are other eligible SNAP unit members in the SNAP unit, follow the general provisions in 0008.06.09 (Removing a Person From the Unit). If there are no other SNAP unit members, close the SNAP case. See 0026.12.03 (10 Day Notice).
If the convicted person is NOT a part of the assistance unit, do NOT impose the sanction.
