    ORLANDO, Fla. (WLS) - A federal judge temporarily blocked Florida's new law that requires welfare applicants to pass a drug test before receiving benefits on Monday, saying it may violate the Constitution's ban on unreasonable searches and seizures.

    Too bad. I thought it was a smart move.

    Enacting un-Constitutional laws is rarely a ‘smart move.’

    If the state believes a citizen is breaking the law, gather evidence of wrong-doing and present it to a neutral magistrate for a warrant.

    This isn’t difficult to understand.

    In Florida's test program for this, only 3% tested positive for drugs. The general population in Florida tests at 11%.

    So welfare recipients are 8% less likely to be doing drugs than the rest of the state.

    Now, will the wingnuts who proposed this dumbass law now reimburse the taxpayers of Florida for their idiocy?

    Why are we not suprised by this Judge doing this to help drug using minorities bilk the taxpayers and putting a drain on the economy? She's a negro. Forced sterilization is the way to go with these type people who are having baby after baby and rewarded with free benefits.
