Great money saving idea for UK, we could also legalise prostitutes

Legal pot means big savings on law enforcement

Cash-strapped California would get some relief by legalizing pot, but the biggest boost would be thanks to massive law enforcement cuts, not new tax revenue, experts say.

  • I thought non-forced prostitution was legal in the UK already .
    Just the advertising for such services is illegal .
    Could be wrong .

    Yup. Yet another argument for legalising drugs and brothels. More money in as tax, lower expenditure on ‘law enforcement’. Plus one over the Daily Mail crows.

    I think we should decriminalise all drugs and have state control like Switzerland and Portugal. They have both demonstrated lower costs to society, lower crime, lower drug use and better health outcomes for addicts, if the state forms a monopoly and drives out illegal ‘free trade’

  • ds,

    I think a working girl is allowed to advertise her services if she is a sole trader, but you are not allowed to advertise that you can supply girls for sexual purposes, as that constitutes ‘living off immoral earnings’ – otherwise known as pimping..

    As the oldest profession can never be successfully prohibited, it is better that it be recognised and accepted; and encouraged to operate in a safe, orderly and licensed fashion.

  • tnc,

    If drug addicts can get a free fix, the pushers will be put out of business, so fewer people will become addicted, and crime will fall.

    What the Swiss get wrong is that they don’t make enough effort to wean people off the dope – otherwise, it makes great sense.

  • I suppose the downside to all this is they did legalise drugs and Pros, they would be available free of charge to those on benefits..
