That just means that there is ample illicit urine to meet the demand.
"They who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
If they used that test, would you be fine with it?
So, did applicantions decrease or not?
“Are vital U.S. interests more imperiled by what happens in Iraq where were have 50,000 troops, or Afghanistan where we have 100,000, or South Korea where we have 28,000 -- or by what is happening on our border with Mexico?...What does it profit America if we save Anbar and lose Arizona?”
If the state used a $2 test, would you be OK with it? It's a simple question.
The OP was scoffing at the tests based upon the amount paid for the tests verses the welfare hand out. Bring the tests down to $2 and the whole OP goes out the window.
This is a pilot programs, Florida can get costs under control in time. This is a program I would like to see go national, and I am not going to let it go belly up because the OP thinks he can justify the costs - he failed. Any freeloaders we can get off the welfare roles is good for the government. Force these druggies to go to work, go to rehab, or starve. It is little to ask.
Here is a 91 minute link to the movie "Friday." No need to see it. It is just a bunch of out-of-work young people getting stoned all day, when down the street there is a health club hiring.

Liberals fail to recognize that modern conservatives are direct evidence of the failure of the public education system.
Or, more likely, it was an inadequate sample size and also people can stop using drugs for the test if it's administered at a known time.
I am a practical liberal Democrat, and I have no problem with providing a safety net for CITIZENS down on their luck. Stories about freeloaders, (I think we have all heard about the woman with 9 children on ADC driving a new Cadillac), are legendary regarding welfare.
I am naive enough to hope there is a professional Government employee reviewing every welfare case and is looking out for us taxpayers. Compliance with welfare policy is their whole reason for being employed. To each according to their qualifications, not their need. That is the capitalistic way we have chosen to require of welfare applicants - it is ridiculous - but that is the law.
