That could work, but I'm also concerned about drugs being widely accessible in the community to kids and teens. Especially in inner city areas. I know where I live there are a lot of seedy spots were heroin and LSD are accessible, and this negatively affects downtown life in a noticeable way.

What I'd like to see is law enforcement aggressively cracking down on the drug trade, but primarily focusing on who does the smuggling. If old Joe down the street with a family of 4 has some crack, we shouldn't ruin his life or do an overblown SWAT raid. But the drugs should be confiscated, and he should be expected to give information as to where the drugs came from (with protection for the family for safety concerns).


Well, legalizing it and regulating age restrictions would curb the illegal drug trade since there would be legal shops.

You could just crack down on unlicensed drug shops/dealers rather than the entire industry in general. It's a much more narrow enemy to deal with.

Well if you legalized them they would be getting their drugs in a back alley but in a drugstore where everything can be regulated. Also the store could refuse to serve you while high like they do to those who have had to much to drink

Christian Traditionalism.

It's why I consider myself conservative now. I used to be liberal, then centrist, and now conservative. It was all relative to how seriously I took my Christianity.

Should prostitution be legal, RWDT? Y/N

Personally, I say yes. Safer for the workers and it'll divert money away from organized crime.

Explain which sort of prostitution you're speaking of.

I am okay with allowing prostitutes to work as independent contractors or sole proprietors of one-person "companies". Meaning, ban pimping.

I am not okay with the model where pimps are allowed to hire prostitutes.

Well they can be independent or can organize themselves into a larger organization.

This organization though would have to be similar, in my opinion, to a chamber of commerce/union/syndicate where they can have a collective bargaining power at the local, state, and national level.

Otherwise, I agree.

The Church used to own a lot of brothels. Also it allows them to be safe and clean compared to being underground where that is prevented. You end up helping some of the most disadvantaged people this way.

Liberalism has severely decayed Church moral authority and has resulted in the break down of the family structure. The left is inhabited by many individuals that would love nothing more than see the extinction of Christianity.

If this is in America, it should be decided by the states. I'm against it because it turns women into a commodity. It also promotes adultery and leads to break downs in marriages and higher divorce rates.

If they make tons of money from it, then God is rewarding their activities thus making it okay in the eyes of God. Especially if it leads to men no longer seducing the wives of their neighbors.
