Marijuana factored into the handful of positive results of Florida’s recently instituted government assistance drug test.
Since last summer, applicants for government assistance in Florida have been required to pass a drug test before receiving federal help, but on Monday a federal judge temporarily blocked that measure in response to a lawsuit filed by the ACLU.

Nearly 1,600 applicants have refused to take the test since testing began in mid-July, but they aren’t required to say why. Thirty-two applicants failed the test and more than 7,000 have passed, according to the Department of Children and Families. The majority of positives were for marijuana.
