My mother works part time for Wal-Mart and is constantly commenting about how she sees people buying food on it then pulling out wads of cash to pay for the cigarettes and alcohol. Regardless she has told me she sees on the receipt a printed line showing how much 'cash' is available on the card and seems to think some EBT recipients have a cash portion of their card available to them. I do not know one way or the other but I told her I would find out. Anyone here have any knowledge of the system and if there is some kind of cash provision to the EBT? Thanks.
