"Why would men stop paying women for sex if drugs were made legal?"
1) Most prostitutes are drug addicts and sell themselves to support their very expensive habit.
2) Most drugs supress a mans sex drive. Some make it impossible to have sex.

It's an interesting theory, although I doubt it - because prostitution has always existed. As long as men are willing to pay for sex, there will be women to sell it - even women who are not drug addicts.
I'm still having trouble following your logic.
You think it would be a good thing for men to drug themselves into such a stupor they are unable to hire a hooker?
And what about the harm this type of person causes to others?
Keep in mind...I live in meth country.
Drugs are cheap here - meth is readily available to the poor as well as the rich.
I live by a lab that just got busted, so I got to see alot of the traffic - some of which crashed into trees alongside our road.
I saw the vacant stares and rotting teeth.
Right now the hazmat teams are trying to see if the wells in the neighborhood were contaminated.
So - I'm not sympathetic to this idea that cheap and legal drugs are going to be a good thing.
Bob Dole would have something to say about that!
To the former agreed. So, in other words drug-addicted women, instead of getting money for drugs through prostitution, would get it through money the government took from taxpayers. I love how every solution, means more money from taxpayers. I agree that legalizing drugs would cost the taxpayers big time, but I'm not sure it would end prostitution.
