Adults should be able to make adult decisions.

For me, it's much like the legalizing weed conversation. I wouldn't be using it, but I'd still prefer to see it legal. I don't have any figures, but I imagine we must waste millions per year trying to stop it.

I sat on a jury for a prostitution trial and the judge told us after the trial that with everything factored in, the court cost something like 12K a day to run. (Not sure how he got those figures, but that's what he said.) So, we spent three days trying to decide the fate of some girl who allegedly did a little extra "hand work" during a massage. We found her not guilty due to insufficient evidence and the judge said that happens all the time.

Yes and no. Smoking meth and killing people are free decisions, but in this case... it's a decision that ultimately harms society less in a legal form than it does in its illegal form, imo.

So, I'm not 100% on board with the "anything someone wants to do is O.K." train. It's case by case, but this just seems to be such an obvious example of where the line has been drawn on the wrong side.

Huge revenue can be generated that's for sure.

There is no doubt that it should be legal.

If there was a way to not let it be a public health issue, I'd be for legalizing it.

As a general rule, I'm for adults being able to make adult decisions that don't directly endanger someone/something else. Be it drugs, sex, guns, whatever. Let people live their lives how they choose if they're not harming others in the process.

Yeah I think legalizing brothels like the Bunny Ranch, **** like that wouldn't be so bad. And counties, if they dont want it, could do like they do with alcohol, they can vote to ban it individually as well. But a good idea I think would be to legalize it nationwide yet allow the counties to ban it if they so choose.

Although streetwalking should still be illegal.

Did you get her number after the trial? Or is that improper?

As I understand it, it already is a county issue. Technically, prostitution isn't a federal offense, it's just that the vast majority of counties in the US makes it illegal.

I'm for legalizing it, but only on a national stage. It attracts a real shady crowd, and say what you will, it will still increase crime and drug addiction if isolated in certain areas.

So in that case, no... keep it illegal.

This isn't the olden days it's a little more advanced than that, heres an example of how it now it's not like starsky and hutch and huggy bear and the only reason they get the shady crowd ( is because it was illegal).

It's an interesting thing to think about. Picture for a moment the kind of people we have running our government. Then contemplate the idea that they are telling you how to live your life; What is appropriate for you, and what is not. Talk about cognitive dissonance.
