who believes that prostitution should be legalized? I mean, yes they should put regulations on it, but imagine the tax revenues that would come out of this industry! What are your thoughts.

  • Same with marijuana; legalize it, tax the hell out of it.

    It would free up space in the prisons for REAL criminals, at least.

  • I don't approve of it but it would help generate more tax money. I feel the same way about marijuana.

  • I am not for it. Tax revenues would be better? Perhaps but what about the women who would be doing the work? I had a college professor who worked with these ladies who were prostitutes and even follow up with them years later. Most were abused as children and were even beaten by men who payed them. They also struggled with depression and alot of addictions. No doubt because of their low self esteem. There are so many other ways that would help not harm to bring in revenue. As far as regulations on it to make it safer? I just dont see how the goverment could do that. Would they have brothels and a state appointed inspector standing there?

  • I think it would help these women out tremdously. You wouldn't have to worry as much about women being forced into it and they could get better medical care as well.

  • I think it should be legalised as well. At least if it's regulated, there will be a lot less health issues with it.

  • No, I don't think so
