Georgia governor signs law to drug test some welfare recipients

By David Beasley

ATLANTA (Reuters) - Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed legislation on Tuesday requiring some applicants for food stamps and welfare benefits to undergo a drug test.

Under the bill, testing could be required if authorities have a "reasonable suspicion" of drug use. (Translation: if the recipient is black.) A person failing the test would temporarily lose benefits, although their children could receive assistance through another adult. (Because kids don't really NEED food.)

Drug use is a barrier to finding and keeping a job, Deal spokesman Brian Robinson said. (So's starvation.)

"If some, however, reject treatment and instead choose a lifestyle that renders them unemployable, taxpayers shouldn't have to subsidize that," Robinson said. (WWJD?)

I like the "give your kids away and maybe we'll feed them" part.

I like the way a Federal judge called an almost identical law in Florida unconstitutional. But hey, why not try it again? Maybe this time it'll work!
