In an interview with Bill Spadea on NJ101.5 yesterday, former Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno said legalizing prostitution would be less harmful than legalizing recreational marijuana and that doing so would benefit the women who work in the world’s oldest profession.
“Now that I’m not running for office anymore, if they need revenue that badly, let’s legalize a victimless crime and tax it up the wazoo. What to I mean by that? Let’ legalize prostitution,” Guadagno said.
“It’s better for women cause they’ll get good medical care. We’ll cut off the middleman, if you know what I mean, and it’s between two consenting adults.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Kim Guadagno, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: Kim Guadagno, Legal Marijuana, legal prostitution, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, prostitution, Recreational marijuana | 9 Comments »
New Jersey is one step closer to legalizing recreational marijuana use after the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and the Assembly Appropriations Committee each approved the New Jersey Marijuana Legalization Act after a four hour joint hearing on the bill.
The Senate Committee passed the bill 7-4, with two abstentions.
Monmouth County’s senators on the committee came down on different sides as Senator Vin Gopal (D-ll) voted in favor of the bill and Senator Declan O’Scanlon (R-13) voted against.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Marijuana, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: Legal Cannabis, Legal Marijuana, Legal weed, Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden, New Jersey, Senator Declan O'Scanlon, Senator Vin Gopal | 5 Comments »
