Food stamps, or EBT cards?

Does anyone get the paper food stamps anymore? I though every state had switched to a card by now.

I read a story few weeks ago about the rationing of stamps back during depression, WW2. It was required to keep all the stamps in the book, could not be torn out before hand. Then you had to present your ID along with the stamps at the cashier. That is how they prevented fraud.

Now they have EBT cards that my gosh, even work in Casino’s.
