The government should legalize all vices...drugs, booze, prostitution, gambling, and anything else of that type, then they should tax the heck out of it. Why not? Right now, organized crime makes all the money. Why not let the government's version of organized crime make the money, rather than taxing to death those who work and pay taxes. While they are at it, they should also legalize selling pain meds and such in pharmacies, without the need for prescriptions. If people want to drug themselves, why not.
