FORMER LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR OF NEW JERSEY FAVORS LEGALIZATION OF PROSTITUTION OVER THE LEGALIZATION MARIJUANA
- November 29, 2018
Needless to say, the fight for marijuana legalization has produced some pretty interesting and downright insane arguments, hasn’t it? Over the course of several decades, underground movements in San Francisco brought about the need for medical marijuana for AIDS patients, while additional studies have shown that the little green plant is an essential part of sports therapy. Likewise, celebrities have made (to put it bluntly) unusually creative requests for professional join rollers. What else could possibly happen to make this situation even stranger? How about a politician saying the U.S. should consider the legalization of prostitution over marijuana? Let’s take a closer look at this unusual proposition and see why the former lieutenant governor of New Jersey thinks sex work should be approved instead of pot.
Prostitution over Pot
Recently, Kim Guadagno (the Republican former lieutenant governor of New Jersey) made a very unusual yet insightful case about the legalization of prostitution while completely bashing marijuana legalization against the political cliffs. In an interview with 101.5FM host Bill Spadea, Guadagno emphasized how the legalization of sex work would allow prostitutes to receive better medical attention and completely cut out criminal activity. As a result, the business would involve the mutual consent of two people. While she considers this prospect outrageous, the former Lt. governor completely dashed the integration of cannabis in our society.
Problems in New Jersey
Overall, the move to legalize marijuana in the State of New Jersey has received tremendous criticism, particularly State Bill S2703 (the Marijuana Legalization Act). Up to the New Jersey Senate and Assembly votes (which came in earlier this week), the public received concentrated disapproval. Meanwhile, Governor Murphy has voiced only a little approval for this piece of legislation, despite the fact that he countered Guadagno with the help of his marijuana decriminalization efforts. Ultimately, conservative public media across the state have been debating the relevance of the legalization of marijuana and prostitution, overall. However, other groups argue that the decriminalization of sex work would only add to future problems, given the fact that prostitution would be controlled by a big industry.
