Prostitution should be like drugs: legalised, taxed, and regulated.

Also, if EFF is accurate on this bill applying retroactively, that's a flagrant violation of the US Constitution's prohibition on ex post facto laws. Fuck I hate agreeing with Liberty Caucus types, but Rep. Amash appears to be completely correct on that.

And here's the House vote if you want to bug your Representative (or praise them if they voted against):

And while the Senate's bill on the matter hasn't had a vote... it does have 66 cosponsors, so you can bug them too.

It passed. Craiglist removed the personals section and Pounced.org (a furry dating website) both shut down because of it.
