We've seen socially progressive strides towards equality in a number of areas. I personally think that prostitution and drug use (not just weed) should be legal. You can make a series of moral arguments to the contrary, but ultimately drug use is by and large less harmful than alcohol dependency and prostituion is nothing more than porn without cameras. If both were regulated...should they be legalized?

I don't necessarily support it, but why don't the Right-Wingers, who say they are for freedom and limited government, support the freedom to sell the use of your body as well as the right to put into it whatever you feel like? Think of the taxpayer savings, no DEA, smaller vice squad. And it is a form of free enterprise, which the Right Wing claims to support.

No, absolutely not.

Anyone supporting it and voting 'Yes' should be careful what they wish for. Not everything is about money. Millions of people get killed for it.

They're dying because drugs are illegal; You don't see Dole and Chiquita sending AK-47 squads to attack each other and kill government officials.

while I don't advocate for their use,I think drugs, prostitution etc.,should all be decriminalized and also think the government has no business taxing or regulating morality as it is run by the most amoral degenerates one will ever see.

Some drugs, like meth, I wouldn't mind seeing illegal. But, it is a free country, and to each their own.

Yes, if adults choose to destroy themselves, that should be their right.
