This randomly came up in the Jews with Guns thread and I would like to discuss it further so I started this thread. Should we legalize prostitution? It's not like the laws that prohibit it have done anything to curb what is considered to be one of the oldest professions in history. At least if it's legal and brothels are heavily regulated by the state and everyone is checked frequently, this could take the STD's, violence and pimps out of the profession altogether. The new tax revenue would do wonders for the country. Discuss.
