    Yes!, Yes!, Yes!, Russia I LOVE you! My Russian brothers and sisters you have come a long way! Now you should legalize Prostitution like my bothers and sisters in the Netherlands, Holland. I visited the Red Light District in Amsterdam, Holland last March. I spent some money there, and had the greatest time!!! There were very friendly people there from all over the world smiling, laughing and having fun. It was alive and exciting to be there. I am not the most handsom guy, but there I talked to several beautiful weman! I enjoyed myself very very much! Everyone there was having good fun. Sex is a great and wonderful thing. Most guys love to look at beautiful weman, and if they can be with a beautiful woman or two or three this is great! Please legalize Prostitution Russia! It will bring you money, beautiful weman, happy men, excitement, fun and more! Amsterdam, Holland’s Red Light District and its legalization of soft drugs especially marijuana is simply good. Holland has a thriving economy, good employment statistics, a happy population of smart, wonderful people. You can watch sexy television at night, buy sexy videos, see live sex shows and it is all wonderful and fantastic! I loved it there so much I told all my friends about it and I would love to return there! SEX BUSINESS IS GOOD BUSINESS! PLEASE LEGALIZE IT MY RUSSIAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS!
    It’s so great I had to say it twice! Yes! Do It! My apologies for any typing errors that got through.

    Russia is proving itself a wonderful world leader again with its legalization of Prostitution! I want to visit its Red Light District as soon as it opens! If it will be anything like the Red Light District in Holland it will be fantastic! Maybe, instead of calling legalized Prostitution areas “Red Light Districts” we should start calling these areas “Green Light Districts.” Green traffic lights usually indicate it’s time for the driver to “go.” So green light districs could help to cause people to think that legalized Prostitution areas is a good place to go, because they are!!!! It is also true that young people grow up wiser, healthier, and much better adjusted when they have been taught about sexuality beginning at early ages! I am a professional teacher and have done a lot of academic research throughout my life! Please believe me! If the entire world would simply reaize that sex is something to be enjoyed, and make birth control devices and methods easily obtainable we could all get along with spending more time enjoying our lives. It is important to remember that as we make sexual activity and education more accepted and present we must make birth control objects and methods more accessible. LONG LIVE RUSSIA!!

    Russia definitely should legalize cannabis and prostitution!! It’s madness to let all the money spent on those two commodities go to the gangs we hate so much.

    But it is VERY important that there are checks to ensure the girls are operating willingly and that they could leave any time they wished. Legalized prostitution must not become legitimized slavery.

    In Russia and around the world cannabis should be controlled by the *same laws* as alcohol. Not a single government has been able to eliminate the demand for cannabis. This unmet demand creates the perfect opportunity for criminals to get rich. They enter our neighborhoods selling their weed and bringing with them violence and easy access to pot by minors.

    Legalize prostitution and control cannabis with the same laws we use for alcohol!!!
