    Drug testing for politicians, civil servants & government contractors?

    Florida's governor Rick Scott signed legislation that called for the drug tests of welfare recipients. The reasoning behind this is to ensure that taxpayer money does not go to pay for a welfare recipient's drug habit.

    But what proponents of this neglect to think about is that taxpayer money also goes to the salaries of politicians and civil servants and also go to businesses who take government contracts, which then in turn trickles down to salaries to their managers and wages to their employees.

    However, they are not mandated to take drug tests to get taxpayer money?

    Should drug testing be mandated for these? Which ones? Why or why not?
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Of course politicians should be drug tested. They are employees of the tax payers just like law enforcement,military,teachers and and any other tax payer funded employee who is drug tested. Besides that, laws should apply to them as well.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
