Governor Rick Scott signed a bill into law today that's already gaining criticism from the ACLU.
It's now the law in Florida for welfare recipients to be drug tested before receiving cash benefits. It would require about 21,000 people in Florida - mostly women and children - to pay for their drug testing. They would be paid back if the test comes back drug free.
If they do test positive for drug use, they would be banned from receiving welfare benefits for at least a year, unless they successfully complete a substance abuse treatment program. The program would also have to come at their own expense. They would then have the chance to re-apply again in 6 months, and be drug tested again.
