Anyone catch that in the paper today, ways to improve tourism in Las Vegas.

Legalizing Dutch-style hashish and marijuana bars: 79% opposed.
Legalizing houses of prostitution in Clark County: 64% opposed.

How do these statistics reflect upon our city, our city residents?

It was said that Las Vegas isn't desperate enough for these measures. Agree/Disagree?

How would Las Vegas be able to create marijuana bars? The whole idea has many legal shortfalls even if the entire population of the city supported it.

Everyone who is intelligent about how the world works and how success and prosperity is made, understands that without freedom for the individual to choose what to do with their own body and money, the economy will fall and the populace dumb downed until the future children are born to honor individuals that are evil and decide the rules for the rest to live by. Although the evil rulers are not the ones actually in control. The society is controlled by the sheeple. Starting with the parents who gave up their rights and taught their peers and then children that life is better to fear than to live. That we need to have boundaries for everything we do. That if we think we deserve real non-materialistic happiness or dream to change things, that it is not normal and not productive for society.



Vegas will never be as good as it used to be. Which is real sad, because with all the technological advancements since the 60's, Vegas had the possibility to be the closest thing to Utopia on Earth, just without a real body of water.



The people in control now are criminals... that work for gov't and corporations. The mob that started Vegas had possibly a dozen rules or so. Today, there is thousands of rules.



When Vegas was free.. It was prosperous.

When Vegas was micromanaged by corporations with strings to gov't ... it declined.



Now, there is hundreds of thousands of sheeple living in a city that was born out of freedom and entrepreneurial dreams, and they turned it into a place where it's illegal to be having too much fun.

I don't agree. I think they should be DECRIMINALIZED. Not have some legalization where the gov't picks which businesses can open and which can not. But that's a whole other topic. It would still be better to legalize than keep it where it's currently at.



79% of Vegans should move out of state, and I guarantee Vegas will rise to prosperity once more. What the **** are they doing in Vegas, if they are such uptight pencil pushers.

After being stationed in Europe and Japan for a couple of years, I dont see why Vegas could not handle legalizing weed and hookers. I have seen some hookers in some of the most conservative areas in Europe(Italy, Germany, England) Yet not one single legal hooker is allowed in Sin City.

Thats strange.

I agree that the suburbanites that moved to Vegas from somewhere else should move back (or at least to Henderson) and return the city to its purpose, which was to entertain adults, not kids or parents (defined as adults that primarly identify with their job of raising kids, and all that entails, like protecting them from adult amusments).

However, decriminalization is not a good idea. Decriminalization typically says you get a fine for simple possession of a small amount, but it is still illegal to grow or sell it. So it begs the question, Where is it supposed to come from? Decriminalization still leaves the grower and supplier subject to arrest and incarceration, maintains high costs, sends all the money to a criminal enterprise (no tax benefit) and leaves the violence associated with illegal activities unabated.

Legalization is a much better alternative for all parties concerned.
