YES. IT'S TRUE!!

Florida Gov. Rick Scott signs law requiring welfare recipients to take drug test, ACLU objects.

If Floridians want welfare, they better make sure they are drug-free.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill on Tuesday that requires benefit recipients to undergo drug testing.

Applicants for the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program who test positive for illicit substances won't be eligible for the funds for a year, or until they undergo treatment.

Those who fail a second time would be banned from receiving the funds for three years.

"While there are certainly legitimate needs for public assistance, it is unfair for Florida taxpayers to subsidize drug addiction," Scott said. "This new law will encourage personal accountability and will help to prevent the misuse of tax dollars."

EVERY AVALANCHE STARTS WITH A SNOWBALL.....
One down.....49 to go!!!
Florida is the first state - Hooray for Florida

Florida is the first state that is now going to require drug testing for
welfare! Some people are crying this is unconstitutional. How is this
unconstitutional? It's completely legal that every other working person had
to pass a drug test in order to have a J-O-B that supports those on welfare!
