Those who propose drug testing for others should be the first to be tested! Since legislators receive state money and are grossly overpaid they should all be tested every time they enter the house and senate chambers. This includes a breathalyzer test! Lets see how well they enjoy being treated like a criminal for no reason at all!!

It would be wise to check to see how much stock Perry has in drug-testing companies and how much those companies have contributed to his campaign funds.
With Perry, it's pay-to-play.
It's a safe bet that Perry would profit from it if it is passed.

That's true. In Florida gov Scott proposed extensive drug tests and own a drug testing company that would have made millions! He wanted to treat state employees as criminals!
