    Depends on the circumstances as to whether I would call it victimless or not though I don't think adultery is a crime anymore.

    Hyperbole much?

    Drug possession aids drug use and production. Possession and use are functionally, in this context the same thing. Want to find me a liberal or libertarian who wants to argue that drug use is a victimless crime that impacts no one other than its user?

    Note, you'll have to find someone who argues the costs of that drug use are not borne by family, friends and society in medical costs and economic losses. Good luck.

    Actually could argue polygamy has victims if they have children according to some but I don't believe it.

    Considering how hundreds of thousands of women are enslaved to feed the world's prostitution market annually, I find it incredibly difficult to argue prostitution is a victimless crime.

    And Warren Jeffs proved that polygamy is hardly victimless. Islamic Polygamy has led to neglect and abuse of wives.

    What about normal polygamists that aren't religious extremists. They have great lives why shouldn't it be legal. I also want prostitution in brothels legal aswell which actually did get passed. U.S. sates legalize weed, Ontario legalizes brothels.

    I dunno about legal, but in their case it may not be a victimless crime, but historically, polygamy has led to some pretty horrific abuses.

    Prostitution can be done properly, but even in legal areas in the EU there is still rampant abuses of women.

    1. Why they don't harm anyone and they one of the nicest elementary schools in the country where they have parent-parent-parent teacher interviews.
    2. Bouncers usually good at solving that problem.

    I think that depends on a lot of factors. If there are no other cars on the road and no passengers it's pretty much only the driver of a vehicle at risk. I get your point about endangerment by ignoring laws in peak traffic though.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
