    New Florida law starts July 1 requires welfare recipients to undergo drug tests. They are allowed to fail only once before they are cut off.
    The ACLU is already suing over this issue in another state.
    I see this as mostly good by forcing addicts to stay clean if they want assistance. I mean why should we fund someone's drug habits with our dollars. Plus it just might get someone off a drug and encourage them to try to make a better life for themselves.
    As far as I'm concerned welfare recipients should have to at least do volunteer work for their aid.

    Thoughts?
