Next week is the start of the test for the food stamps (or coupon) for the poor and the unemployed. I don't conform but the government thinks that being kind to the citizens will at least do some good with the money instead of going to senseless projects. The food stamp can be availed if you lose your job. However, the method is you can only use the food stamp to buy consumable products in selected stores only. That means the beneficiary cannot sell the food stamp so they can use the money for other purchases.
