And on the subject od testing lawmakers...

The argument for proposals to drug-test welfare applicants is that the people deserve to know that their tax dollars are not going to support someone's drug habit. That would also appear to be the argument that such drug-testing does not constitute an unreasonable search and seizure. Of course, most state workers are not required to take a drug test. Neither are state lawmakers, and while some have expressed support for the idea, others would rather not talk about it.
