Florida Welfare Drug Testing Program

Lets Talk About The Fourth Amendment Mr. Scott
The 11th Circuit Court voted unanimously to uphold the 2011 decision by an Orlando,
court that the tests violate the Fourth Amendment’s protections against unreasonable search and seizures. Republicans across the country have sponsored these types of bills in state legislatures, purportedly to protect children from being raised by drug-addicted parents and to stem the tide of drug use among the poor and unemployed. Aside from the testing being unconstitutional, however, that rising tide of poor and unemployed people using drugs has turned out not to exist.
