HEADLINE: ACLU challenges drug testing of Fla. state workers
CAPTION: The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida is suing Florida Gov. Rick Scott over ordering drug testing for all state employees, regardless of suspicion. (June 1)
(sot: Howard Simon, Executive Director, ACLU of Florida)
We only have the capacity to deal with about 2 a week. And this Governor and this legislature is manufacturing legal challenges. I want to say this should be a civics lesson for the people of Florida. Thank God the entire government is not run by the governor’s office or by the legislature. We have a third branch of government, which is the courts and it’s now time for the courts to step up and protect the citizens of Florida from the abuse of their rights.
The state’s own test showed that welfare recipients don’t have a rate of drug abuse any more so than people who are not on welfare. Nothing had demonstrated that state employees are drug abusers. The only thing that has changed is the radical politics of this governor, not welfare recipients and not state employees.

on Tuesday several top leaders from Warren Jeffs’ polygamous sect were arrested on federal accusations of food stamp fraud and money laundering. The arrests mark one of the biggest crackdowns on the group in years. The charges are the government’s latest move targeting the sect based on the Utah-Arizona border. They coincide with legal battles in two states over child labor and discrimination against nonbelievers. Prosecutors say church leaders diverted funds from Utah’s nutrition assistance program for inappropriate use. Leaders allegedly forced members to put food into a communal storehouse so it could be divvied up.

Oklahoma and Nebraska are petitioning the Supreme Court to declare Colorado’s marijuana policy unconstitutional.
Attorney General Scott Pruitt of Oklahoma made the announcement on Thursday, citing the “health and safety risks posed by marijuana, especially to children and teens.”
The short press release claimed that Colorado’s legalization and commercialization of marijuana has made it difficult for neighboring states to enforce their own policies.
Oklahoma and Nebraska are two of seven states that neighbor Colorado, but so far, none of the others have joined in on the lawsuit.
In a press conference on Thursday, Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning addressed the petition.
“This contraband has been heavily trafficked into our State,” Bruning said, according to an Omaha.cop report. “Federal law has declared it a narcotic, but our current Department of Justice wants to give them a pass.”
Roughly 48 hours after that press conference, Congress passed a bill including a provision that lifts the federal government’s prohibition on marijuana.
The Supreme Court now needs to decide whether it will hear the case.
