    I think many other States will. Florida is just making it known that it is no longer a Welfare-Friendly State. This will encourage much of their Entitlement crowd to leave the State and relocate to more Welfare-Friendly States like California & New York. They have to thin the herd. The Entitlement crowd has grown to record levels. This type of Legislation is just a friendly nudge encouraging the Entitlement crowd to leave Florida. You want Welfare? Take the Drug test. If you don't want to take the Drug test? No Welfare and maybe leave Florida. These Laws serve a real & tangible purpose. Many more States will follow Florida's lead on this.

    In our city Goodwill provides drug screening services and charges the city $50 a pop.

    The welfare recipient cannot afford the $50 buck so who pays for it? the city.

    So the money the state spends on screening welfare recipients for drugs every month eats away and may possibly become more expensive than just giving them the money in the first place.

    do the math. 100 people screened at $50 a head equals $5,000 per month. For a year that comes to $60,000. How long is the wait period for results?

    This is just a bad idea all the way around.

    Many States are just looking for ways to thin their swelling Entitlement herds. This Law will encourage some Welfare recipients in Florida to leave the State and look for greener Welfare pastures elsewhere. And that's what these Laws are all about.

    Your logical fallacy is your assumption that in the end kids are the responsibility of government, not the parents. Well taxpayers, do you want to pay for the abortion or the food, take your pick. It's your kid!!!!!!!

    Um...no it's not. Now as a member of society it is my job to help kids, but unlike you I take that responsibility for myself. For example, when I lived in NY I wouldn't give the homeless money, but if I had time I bought them a meal. I had no objection to their boozing with their body, but I didn't feel charity was my paying for it. With government, they pretty much maximize the idiot in charity.

    Personally I'd love a job where my only responsibility is not taking drugs. But as for you, you count the cost of the drug screening, but not the savings from not giving checks to people who fail it? Liberal math...
