Do you think victimless crimes should be legalized?

Prostitution, Homosexuality (marriage, and in some countries, the act itself), Drugs--all of these are considered 'victimless crimes'. Most arguments against legalization of these crimes center around morality. Some believe that legalization of victimless crimes will lead to a degradation of society and eventually the society will be headed for demise. But if these crimes were legalized, there could be more regulation which would result in the protection and security of many more people. What do you think? Why should or shouldn't victimless crimes be legalized? What kind of regulations do you think should be in place if they were legalized?

There are really no victimless crimes in my opinion. I mean, prostitution? Really? How many johns have families that are destroyed by their going to a prostitute.

I do think that all of those things should be legalizd. There would be less demand, and the serious, organized crime sects would not profit from it. If you take away the enormous profit, these things will still be around, but they won't hurt as many people collaterally. And by the way, Homosexuality should not be considered in this respect(as a crime) as it is not a choice.

I dont think there is such a things as a victimless crime, some one some where will suffer or be impacted by it either financially, physically or emotionally. Prostitution for example is thr trafficing of humans for sexual pleasure a large percentage of the women involved are forced into it through violence or drugs, they are not willing to partake in it and as such are victims,

I would like to see these things tested by individual states like gay marriage has been or gambling. I think this gives people a chance to see what really happens with say medical marijuana as to whether horrible problems arise. Vegas has legal prostitution somewhat now and some countries have legalized most drugs so we can see what happens. I'd like to see this for most issues, want to go were abortion is illegal or where immigrants are publicly welcomed I'd like to see these states to so you can choose, test and observe what comes from it. Vegas seems like somewhere I'd never want to live but without its existance I would only have theory.

the only victimless crime i can think of is smoking pot. i think prostitution does have victims and homosexuality as well. all the pills and hard core drugs on the streets make victims too. pot is the only thing i can think of that should be legallized. i think pills and alcohol should be illegal.

I can't see that victimless crimes should be legalized, because in my mind ... no crime is victimless. There is always a victim even if it's hard to see at first.

Grace you are rght this time ,isnt that strange.Any way, crime with fines, and all that have never done any thing but put money in the court system.We as tax payers, pay for the crime by paying for the prison time spent.The morels of man has never goten any beter,in doing things this way.David in the bible was a man that loved God with all his heart ,but sined by sex he had with another mans wife.In this Case he went to God for his wrong .There was a punishment,but it did not come from man it was between David and God.This is the way it should be.Man only messes things up.

I think all crimes no matter what form have some type of victim in the end or someone gets hurt no matter what. It's either the person committing the crime or who it inadvertantly effects such as a child whose parent does drugs, the person who gets aids who didn't know the other person had it, etc. I don't know whether or not legalizing any of these would have a different outcome or not. I think the people that are going to do them are going to do them whether they are legal or not.
