UNCONSTITUTIONAL

Judge Nixes FL Welfare Drug Tests

A Florida law requiring welfare applicants to go through drug testing was ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge. Republican Governor Rick Scott had backed the controversial measure, saying it protected taxpayers as well as families. Opponents, as well as the judge, considered the law an unconstitutional search and seizure, sincere there was no widespread drug usage among welfare applicants. Scott says he will appeal the decision.
