Yesterday’s New York Times printed an AP item about another disgraceful new law produced by the heat-stroked Florida, governed by Rick Scott (I provide the emphasis, with this excerpt):
Florida: Few Drug Users Among Welfare Applicants
Preliminary figures compiled under a new state law requiring drug tests for welfare applicants show that they are less likely than other people to use drugs, not more. The results have prompted Carl Hiaasen, the Florida columnist and author, to suggest that the people who came up with the law should be the ones submitting specimens. Mr. Hiaasen, saying “there is a certain public interest in going after hypocrisy,” has offered to pay for drug testing for all 160 members of the Florida Legislature.
