It looks like Florida is one of the first states to start drug testing welfare recipients. Governor Rick Scott had made this a priority of his office.

Now, anyone applying for government assistance will be required to pass a drug test which they purchase themselves. They will be reimbursed upon passing the test and then be qualified to receive assistance.

This is met with opposition in some states while others feel this is a way to save revenue and provide assistance to those who will use it to better their lives. Similar law was passed in Michigan in 1999 but repealed after a judge ruled it unconstitutional.

Should taxpayers support people who are using illegal drugs, or should this be ruled unconstitutional?
