drug tests

Agree, this is at its core just a money scheme... though if the numbers in Florida are to be taken as a sign, it's a disastrously ill-conceived one. Hopefully that'll stop it in its tracks.

I guess what really gets my goat is the tendency to specifically target the disenfranchised. It's disrespectful (to say the least) to assume you can deny basic human rights to a group of people, in the name of money, just because they happen to be poor / disenfranchised.

There's a new money-making scheme in Arizona, courtesy of the Dept of Corrections--- each adult who wants to visit an inmate in prison will have to pay a $25 fee (valid for a year). This is bad news for low-income families who on top of that have to pay travel costs to visit the often far-flung prisons... in fact the fear is it might discourage family visits that many inmates desperately look forward to and rely on. But hey, who cares about a bunch of convicts, right? Angry
PS. If you can, try your hand at giving some of the others a bit of feedback. If you already have, thanks, can you do some more?
