No more using food stamps for crack. Florida just made it tougher for poor people to show up high for the welfare line.

Saying it is "unfair for Florida taxpayers to subsidize drug addiction," Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday signed legislation requiring adults applying for welfare assistance to undergo drug screening.

Is drug screening welfare applicants a slap in the face or a necessary step to avoid taxpayer waste?

    First of all, I believe people have the right to choose what they consume, whether it is a specific type of food, a crack rock, or a joint of marijuana. It is personal freedom and no amount of laws will stop it (actually, less laws will reduce it more). However, no tax payers should be funding drug habits. When it comes to people collecting tax payer funds to support their lives we should make sure it is not being spent on a drug habit. If you support yourself you can do what you want.

    First of all I am totally PRO drug testing welfare recipients. Why the hell would anyone want their hard earned money going twards a crackheads habit. I sure don't. I feel that welfare is for those less fortunate to recieve if they truely need it to survive.

    It no one business but flordia ...If flordia wanna create more criminal then they should go ahead .Positive side they can live longer from cutting out drugs wow other people will die from aids and other dieases.. Neagtive side more stores and people are going to be robbed and probably be killed..

    I really think iIf they gonna do that non-organic food and fast resturante should be aganist the law but wouldn't that be aganist the bill of rights or they just don't care about rights anymore?

    MY VOTE UNFORTUNATLY WAS A MISTAKE. YES I DO THINK ALL SHOULD BE DRUG TESTED BECAUSE TOO MANY RUINED THE PROGRAMS BECAUSE OF THEIR STUPID DRUG ADDITIONS AND SALES OF ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE! and also. Everyone in this country should have to go on diet and excersize programs and get to healthy weight because THAT is costing this country too!! FOOD is an addition AS WELL! Obesity should be a crime if weight loss is not pursued! Mind u,, there SHOULD B FREE weight loss programs available

    Why should us tax payers continue to give free money to people that abuse themselves and their children?
    I would rather my money went on taking their kids and putting them in foster homes than to allow constant abuse from a drug addicted parent/s.
