Why not legalize prostitution?

http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/local/howard/bal-md.ho.britton30jan30,0,5706546.story?track=mostemailedlink

Here in Howard County we just had a young woman commit suicide after being arrested and hailed into court because she was entrapped into a situation where she supposedly took money from someone who was supposedly a consenting adult in exchange for apparent sexually-related activity. It's true that this woman seemed to have other problems and who knows what led her to do what she did at the end.
Anyway, do we as a society really need to prosecute or persecute someone who engages in consensual sex for profit with another adult? I would hope not.
Sex can be a dangerous thing these days and I don't think there can be a thing like too much sex education in the schools. But do we really want big brother monitoring or proscribing the private affairs of adults when it's all consensual and no minors are involved? Is this what we want from our lawmakers and law enforcers? Does the fact that money changes hands make it all different? Really?
Enough of prudery as far as I'm concerned. Let's abolish these puritanical laws and have our law enforcers concentrate on real problems and real crimes.

You are right on with this one. It makes no sense that you can give it away, but you can’t sell it.

Would you feel differently if you lived next door to her with your children playing in the street while people come in and out all day?

While its unfortunate that she took her life, I don't think its reasonable to blame prostitution not being legalized.

Speaking of real crimes, it seems like the Industrial Revolution may be guilty. Time for us all to solve this quickly.

Well why stop there? Let's legalize drug dealing since growing drugs is really an agricultural activity? Slippery slope.....

Pzguru- There may be some societal benefit to governmental control of highly addictive and dangerous drugs like crack and heroine, but there is significant merit in legalizing marijuana. The fact that mary jane is illegal is good evidence that governmental regulations often go way too far. Heck, it even has medical uses. Why does the government tell someone with cancer that they can’t dance with Mary? Because the lobbyists that work for the major drug companies don’t want their clients to lose profits, of course.

If politics are legal, why not leave the other whores alone?

With regard to viagra and erectile dysfunction, it is already apparent that Viagra was first developed as a treatment for angina but later the drug emerged to be a suitable cure for male impotency but far more striking news is presently capturing the attention of the whole world. Seems Untrue! Well, it is doubtlessly true that oysters fed with the anti-impotency drug Viagra has shown effective results against erectile dysfunction and George May, the Australian farmer who created Viagra oysters became thoroughly popular after the news relating to the efficacy of his Viagra oysters leaked out. Guys! If cheap viagra can make oysters so powerful against erectile dysfunction then why won’t you be able to combat your impotency successfully after you buy viagra online? Opt for Viagra via viagra online and once you buy viagra and administer the drug in accordance with the instructions of the doctor, you would instantly get cured of erectile dysfunction!
