Drug Testing State Employees Will Fail A Constitutional Test

TAMPA (2012-3-12) -

Last week the Florida State Legislature approved random drug testing of state employees. Governor Scott is expected to sign that into law. But, constitutional Law expert John Goldsmith of Trenam Kemper says that law will probably be challenged and run up against the Fourth Amendment -- the constitutional prohibition against unreasonable search and seizure. Goldsmith says that's why no other state in the Union has such a drug testing law for state employees.
