"Proponents of Proposition K say it would free up $11 million that the city’s authorities spend each year arresting prostitutes."
For the record, I'm all for legalized prostitution but only if it regulates the sex workers. Legalized prostitution should mean required testing ever 3 months and a license to prove you have had all your regular tests. I think every girl on the street without a license should still be arrested. I think it should also divert the $11 million previously spent on arresting prostitutes to subsidized rehab programs for addicted prostitutes. Because I think the only people who should be selling sex are those that have a choice, not those that have to because it's the only way possible to pay for their drug addiction. Maybe I'm idealistic, but I'd like to think there are some clean and sober prostitutes out there who are putting their earnings into a mortgage, their 401k or their kid's college fund.
