Video: 'The Daily Show' Tries to Drug Test Florida Gov. Rick Scott

| by Michael Allen

Earlier this year, Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) signed a law requiring the state’s welfare recipients to take a drug test before they could receive benefits. Test runs showed only 2 percent of the state’s recipients failed the drug test, a smaller percentage than the average drug use of Florida's population.

During Gov. Rick Scott's press conference on Wednesday, 'The Daily Show’s' Aasif Mandvi asked Scott to pass a drug test and presented him with a cup to urinate in. However, Gov. Scott did not agree to the same test that he requires of the poor in Florida (video below).
