Yes, unless you are going to live in West Virginia, South Carolina and Mississippi. These states still enforce a lifetime ban on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps, for people who commit drug-related felonies. Indiana had a lifetime ban but just changed its law to lift it, effective in 2020.
