    I received this in an email this morning.

    Living north of Florida as I do, I am not sure that I find the highlighted portion of this little missive comforting. And what will happen if all 50 states enact this legislation. Drug addicts are not going to straighten up and fly right just because they are evicted. Chances are, they have been evicted many times over in their lives. Subsidized housing is not why they are addicts in the first place, and taking that away will not cure the problem. There are so many fucking reductionists in our government it is no wonder we are in such a mess today.

    The first round of testing done at some point this summer produced 2% positive tests, 2% inconclusive and 96% clean. Unless that changes its going to be another wasteful program.

    Governor Skeletor is just making the clean test industry richer. You can get clean urine for $60. Go Capitalism!

    There are also a lot of gray areas. One I can think of relates to whom the housing is let. Suppose granny has a child or grandchild living with her who tests positive. Are we going to evict granny?

    My guess is Hell Yes. Granny can't even fly in this country, why should she not have to live on the street as well! And if we don't evict granny, who's going to check every night to make sure she doesn't have company?

    The ACLU will be on this one like white on rice. And yes, this IS a wasteful program.
