    Something that should be allowed under free market ideals or something that should remain criminal for the good of public morality?

    Female hookers actually find work in that sausage factory?

    You would certainly think so.

    It's the "victimless crime" argument. Of course, the argument against that is that the allowance of victimless crimes like prostitution or selling drugs often increases the probability of real crime occurring.

    And then there's the counterargument to the counterargument: Drug abuse actually increased during the War on Drugs.:D

    Well of course, all of the liberal hippie parents from the 60s and 70s were having children of their own and telling them to "Turn on, tune in and drop out". Plus, American's were moving to suburbs in increasing numbers. Have you ever lived in a suburb? The boredom they create may be the best argument for drug use. Of course, you could just watch TV, it'll dull your brain just as well, you just won't have as much fun doing it. :laugh2:

    Man, the one time I went there a few years back, I was amazed at how many attractive Asian females there were. It may be the gay capital of the US, but it's still got its fair share of females for those of the heterosexual persuasion. :)

    I have lived in suburb. I grew up in a rural community-turned-suburb, remember?:D
