Florida families, TANF and the new law on drugscreening

An article on CNN published today discusses a new law Florida's governor Rick Scott signed that requires drug testing for adults registering for the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program (TANF). The tests will be administered by the state's Department of Children and Family Services and tested adults will have to pay for the test themselves - but the costs would be recouped if they qualify. If the test comes back positive, they will have to select another adult to receive the benefits on behalf of their children.

What are your thoughts on this?
