    "From August 2012 through July 2013, the state prescreened 4,730 applicants to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program with a written test.

    The state followed up with an actual drug test for the 466 of those whose written answers suggested a likelihood of drug use.



    The 466 tests turned out 12 positive results, as the Associated Press first reported.

    The results were similar when Florida launched welfare drug testing in 2011 and just 2.6 percent of applicants tested positive.

    National surveys usually find that about 8 percent of respondents used drugs in the previous month."



    Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, Dave Rubin and special co-host Desi Doyen discuss.
