    You will be better off and make more money if it remains illegal because you won't report your income on your tax returns.

    " Sex Depot " , " Screw Mart " ," Hump Outlet "

    I can see you are a supporter of what corporatism would do the " the oldest trade "

    Not to even mention that the market would be flooded with cheap Chinese merchandise .

    No. Look at Las Vegas for example. A room is advertised at $90. Add in "resort fee," tax on resort fee, room tax, local taxes and fees, and the real cost of that room is over $200. If "escorts" were taxed, a ** real cost would be $1300 and don't even think about a**l, that would be around $3,000.

    I think I'm sick and tired of liberals only supporting things being legal if the government can regulate and tax it. Really, the only reason democrats even thought about allowing people to legally buy and sell pot is because they would be in charge of it and get huge tax returns from it. This same idea is really all your proposing here, but with prostitution instead of pot.

    Yes it should be. There is no reason this is the government's business.

    Yes. Most people who resort to prostitution do it because they are destitute. Criminalizing them is criminalizing poverty. If we aren't going to actually do anything to help the poor, the least we could do is not throw them in prison when they try to help themselves.

    Sure. It's done anyway. Might as well get some tax money anyway.

    Yes. As long as trafficking isn’t involved, it’s a victimless crime. Legalizing it would bring it out in the open and greatly decrease the possibility of trafficking.
