Florida actually tried drug testing welfare recipients. They found that it actually cost the state more money to perform the tests. 2.6% of those receiving welfare actually failed the drug test.

There goes that myth.
Not that I could give a single shit what drugs you're taking (even if it is using money from the government), but either those were some cheap ass drug tests or poor people use drugs far, far less than people with decent incomes.
