Should welfare recipients be allowed to buy cigarettes, beer, or lottery.?

I think if you are living off of other peoples income ( like welfare recipients), you should not be able to buy these things. I think if you are caught your payments should be stopped and you should be given vouchers for food at the local food bank instead. Cruel?
Update: Actont2001: If working people didnt shop at GW they would not have as much money to do charitable deeds.

Beardog: A truly free market economy would not have welfare in the first place. And that too, would be fine with me!
