Here’s a CNN headline that cuts to the chase:
Drugs, sex work and gambling embraced by 2020 hopefuls
"A Democrat wants to legalize sex work. A Republican governor is trying to legalize sports betting in his state. The vast majority of Democrats running for President want to legalize marijuana.
"The effort led by Sen. Cory Booker to legalize marijuana doesn’t really even feel that controversial. Not all of his potential rivals for the Democratic primary have signed on, but most have.
"Sen. Kamala Harris supports legalizing sex work, which she discussed with the website The Root, complaining that current law ends up hurting women more than johns and pimps who can benefit from prostitution.
"When you’re talking about consenting adults, you know, yes, we should consider that we can’t criminalize consensual behavior as long as no one is being harmed," she said."
