However, although the arguments of prostitution legalization proponents often seem reasonable and practical, there are a lot of points, which can support the opposite views. The first argument against legalization of prostitution is that it does not give any serious benefits to women involved to this industry, but provides a lot of advantages for pimps, traffickers and the whole sex industry at large.

However, even if they were, he argues that participating in many sporting activities is very dangerous as
Due to the lack of control, the DEA had over Ecstasy is what drove them to make it illegal. The DEA finally cracked down on MDMA and started putting people in jail. When MDMA was legal scare tactics where different, all they could do was use scare tactics to keep young adults away from it by emphasizing the side effects of MDMA. This drug has the reputation of being a benign and fun drug, but I think since this drug got out of hand to the point that the government had to step in and take control of the situation.

Just as antidepressants are used in today’s society. The people who take these drugs may be using it for depression, or other conditions such as anxiety or shyness.
