At the end of February, a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling declaring Florida’s drug testing requirement for those who receive financial assistance from the state to be unconstitutional. This was an absolutely open and shut case, so it’s not surprising that Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman or Orly Taitz, with the help of the Worldnutdaily, is spouting some serious nonsense over it.

The headline shows you the spin:

"ACLU helps addicts go on state-funded highs"

Oh, of course. That’s what they did. It has nothing to do with the 4th Amendment requirement that the government have probable cause before you perform a search. Indeed, Staver carefully avoids even looking at that issue with this argument that even a 12 year old would find laughable:
