Should people on food stamps be allowed to spend their benefits on organic food?

    Yes. Food stamps are intended to be used to buy food. Organic food is a kind of food. Why not?

    Of course. However, I would imagine that the higher cost of organic food would act as a disincentive to people who purchase their groceries within a highly limited budget. In fact, I think that higher cost is the primary reason why most people don’t buy organic produce generally. On a related question, someone argued that people who receive food stamps should receive a supplement set of vouchers for local farmers markets, which I think is a brilliant idea.
