    This is modeled on a tactic used to prosecute drug dealers. The Harrison Narcotics Tax Act has taxed opiates since 1914. Eleven states do the same, so this isn't a new idea.

    Bwaaahaaaahaaahaaaa!!!

    I'd love to see what the lawyers (esp jl) who visit this site think about this proposed legislation.

    On the face of it (to my layman's eyes) it almost looks like a partial "decriminalization" (for want of a better word), insofar as it appears to put pimping/prostitution on a similar legal footing as cigarettes and alcohol.

    <<..."We need to simply treat the pimps and massage parlor operators the way we would treat anybody who takes the proceeds of a customer transaction from somebody and then gives a fraction of it back," he said. ...>>

    Wonder what that does to the tax preparers offering "refund anticipation loans" to clients.
