Check out this bullshit that the Legislature wants to cram down our throats:

A Toccoa legislator is sponsoring a bill to require random drug testing of recipients of unemployment compensation benefits and other government assistance.

HB 1389, sponsored by Rep. Michael Harden, would require that the cost of the drug test be paid by the recipient or deducted from his or her benefits. Failing the drug test could result in a loss of benefits.

Harden's proposal calls for the Georgia labor commissioner to conduct annual random drug testing of unemployment benefit recipients.

Yeah, because people on UNEMPLOYMENT have money to burn just to satisfy the nanny instincts of some fuckhead congressman. How about we put breathalysers on the floor of the Statehouse and require that every state senator and congressman have to pass one before their vote on any bill be counted? That would do a lot more good, IMHO.
