For everyone posting this “Drug testing when applying for welfare” thing, please take some time to review the facts of these cases. First off, of the three states cited, only Florida actually passed this law, which was struck downl back in October. Second, the law is unconstitutional. The Fourth Amendment protects against “search and seizure” without probable cause. Being poor is not probable cause, and this has been stated by the courts multiple times. Finally, the program, while it was in effect in Florida, actually cost more money than it saved! The program “saved” about $73,000, while it cost $118,000, not counting the ever increasing legal costs.
