    Cailfornia needs the tax revenue. Hawaii or NYwill never legalize it.

    Ive always said...if men could get paid for prostitution as easily as women not only would it be legal but they would offer college degrees in the field.

    Didn't go very far. There will be states that legalize it like Nevada but the nation as a whole will never make it legal.

    There is a lot of support for its legalization already. It is just not a very vocal movement. Yet.

    Why it's time to legalize prostitution - CSMonitor.com
    Legalized Prostitution: Regulating the Oldest Profession
    Decriminalization of Prostitution
    The Legalization of Prostitution

    And some polls done on various sites/by various organizations:
    Legalize Prostitution? SHOCKING Poll Results Are In!
    Poll: Should prostitution be legalized? | NJ.com

    And the Libertarian Party completely supports legalization.

    In the case of legalizing and legitimizing prostitution, I say it's not worth the effort. Government cannot make it safe, much less acceptable.

    California is busy replacing traditonal industries with pot and prostitution. How pathetic. We in the flyover states should require shots and passports to visit there.

    Not every part of the us is peopled with liberals/leftists. Many of us have a different idea of what constitutes a functioning society.
