Legalizing and regulating prostitution would be beneficial in many ways. Legalizing Prostitution would greatly decrease sex crime rates. It is a fact that sex crime rates are much lower in areas where prostitution is legal.
Sex trafficking is becoming a bigger problem everyday in the US. Not to mention Rape and Pimping. Prostitution could be regulated and monitored just as it is in Nevada. Regulating it would also keep the sex workers off the streets and provide a more safe environment for the workers and customers, its guaranteed to also decrease sex crime committed onto sex workers.
Regulating it will also prevent the spread of disease because all sex workers must be tested regularly. Prostitution should be a victimless crime but it being illegal is causing there to be a black market and many victims as a result.
The sex industry will always be prosperous in one way or another because its only human nature and trying to control nature as we know is impossible.
So Stop Sex trafficking and other sex crimes not to mention disease control by legalizing and regulating prostitution.
We the undersigned, call on the state legislation to legalize and regulate prostitution.
Legalizing prostitution would greatly reduce sex crime rates and regulating it will control diseases and give the sex workers a safer way to work. Prostitution should be not only legalized but also regulated in specific areas of the state.
Any crimes of prostitution or pimping outside of those regulated areas should receive harsher punishment to persuade sex workers to stay within the laws.
The age of 21 and up should also be enforced.
