ACLU sues over Florida law requiring drug tests for welfare applicants

ACLU of Florida and a U.S. Navy vet from Orlando have filed a class action lawsuit against Florida challenging a new law that requires welfare applicants to pass a drug test. (Background on new law here.)

The Navy vet is Luis Lebron, who receives welfare while caring for his son and disabled mother.

I'm sure there will be many more lawsuits as a result of this bogus drug testing bill.
