Only 49 more states to go!

Hooray for Florida !

I-95 and I-75 will be jammed for the next month or so with druggies and deadbeats heading North out of Florida, because this is the first state in the union to require drug testing to receive welfare!

Hooray for Florida ! In signing the new law, Republican Gov. Rick Scott said, "If Floridians want welfare, they better make sure they are drug-free."

Applicants must pay for the drug test, but are reimbursed if they test drug-free. Applicants who test positive for illicit substances, won't be eligible for the funds for a year, or until they undergo treatment. Those who fail a second time will be banned from receiving funds for three years!

Naturally, a few people are crying this is unconstitutional.
How is this unconstitutional? It's a legal requirement that every person applying for a job has to pass drug tests in order to get the job, why not those who receive welfare?

I am pretty sure they have been doing for a few years now.

If they have been doing it, good for them and I hope they stand their grounds and other states will come forth and do the same.I agree with you Rose, you need a drug test for employment and they should also have to be tested.

While I worked in the drug treatment program at the Salvation Army the majority of the men in the program were on welfare and food stamps, and they all had the "You owe it to me." Attitude.

This is a great move by Florida wether doing it for years or just starting they are setting a good example this should be in all 50 states. Hopefully this will keep some people off illegal drugs now too.

Yeah this is the problem with welfare and food stamps programs people with a you owe me attidude get on it and never try and get off. If we have it people should only get on it if there's no other option and start trying to get off.

A giant step in the path of fiscal sanity, and huge leap, in the effect, that the constituency, has had on the state of governmental matters. . .
Lets keep up the pressure on our elected leaders, and keep up the great work. . .

Rose, excellent post! Boot, you have hit the most succinct point directly on the bullseye... To add a little point ...in my job , being almost 60, believe it or not I get drug tested at random Very frequently...In high speed, high dollar construction it tends to be that way, oh well...if ya cant run with the big dawgs..blah, blah... in other words make urself useful.
