  • I am surprised CA is not on the dozen list being a border state and having a HUGE coastal shipping industry.

  • I'm in PA - Orange! Not good! This is a cause I've always supported and been active in, so it breaks my heart that so few states have laws in place to support the efforts of those who are passionate about it this us.

  • Well, this map ONLY points out which states are lacking in laws, it doesn't actually point out which states have a high occurrence of trafficking. But the first step to ending this issue is making sure there are laws in place to discourage the practice and punish those who partake in it.
