It's starting to spread! Louisiana just did this not but a few weeks ago to much controversy. It's amazing how anything instantly becomes a race issue when it takes away welfare....

Yeah, it's funny how fast the race card is pulled but drugs are universal.
I think when budgets are in jeopardy, measures that should have been put into place long ago become more acceptable. I'm glad to see progress on something that matters.

That's exactly it too, and I had to explain it to somebody else. State and Federal governments are broke and they are going to look at any and all options to cut the fat. Since taking money from education is extremely unpopular the only places they have left to go are socialist, i mean "public funded" assistance programs and state agencies. The problem is, they tend to cut police and fire budgets right along side.

In any case I hope it reaches my state soon..... My Senator should have gotten my e-mails a few hundred times lol.

The Florida law only applies to people getting money from Welfare. Those getting food stamps and Medicaid only do not have to do the drug tests. That commie bunch (American Civil Liberties Union) has already filed a court suit to stop the law from taking effect.

Seems its denying druggies their civil rights to take our tax money to support their habits.

I fully support drug testing for welfare. I'm currently on foodstamps myself, and while I use my allotment only for food, I know of others that trade it for money for drugs or other stupid crap.

I would love the whole country to do more common sense stuff like this.

I'd love to hear a convincing argument against this.

This will be good.

Yeah, when I heard about this I was just like, "Seriously? It's about frickin' time! Why wasn't this in effect all along?" Seems like a no brainer to me.
