drug tests

Looks like Florida is being sued by the American Civil Liberties Union over the drug tests.

Here's the kicker: for the one month that the drug tests have been going on in Florida, the state is actually losing money (apparently the way it works is even though the person applying for welfare is asked to pay for the test, the state reimburses them if their tests come back clean). Only 2% of the welfare applicants in Florida failed the test; the savings from the withheld payments are certainly not enough to cover the $28,800 in reimbursements for the 960 welfare recipients who tested clean. Oh, irony. Tongue
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?
