There have been many discussions at diverse places regarding partially legalizing certain drugs and prostitution in order to tax it and regulate it better. The thought is that through pricing and availability the illegal market would dry up. Marijuana is the drug of choice to be first decriminalized. AS for where it stops who knows but the hard economic times are challenging many to think outside the box. Also with the aging population many know better what the drugs are today and are not as afraid of them or their effects as past generations have been.
