Failed Drug Test

The Supreme Court isn’t touching Gov. Scott’s attempt to violate the Fourth Amendment.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s petition to review a ruling that his random drug testing policy for state employees is unconstitutional, the latest in a series of legal battles facing the governor.

Gov. Scott is 0 for 2 on the drug testing front:

Scott faced similar defeat Dec. 31, 2013, when a federal judge struck down a law requiring Florida cash welfare recipients to pass a drug test. It could constitute an illegal search and seizure, a judge said.

If the law applied to everyone who received cash welfare — including corporations — the law would never have seen the light of day in the first place.

One bark on “Failed Drug Test

  1. If Governor Voldemort is so anxious to find druggies in FL, he should stop looking among the folks that can’t afford them – and start looking harder at the folks who can.

    Someone please explain to me how this assault on workers is in any way complementary to a “pro-business” state policy.
