Americans cracking down drinking driving.
The -- could definitely be going to.
Jail cracking down on sex for money you should be ashamed of yourself politicians tax what they called.
Taxes tobacco keeps kids from smoking when they don't tax they've banned if your kids gamble.
There's three to four times more likely to steal food government save millions meet.
Kids who play video games that hey this is just like the tobacco industry for years ago don't politicians realize that their solutions cause new problems.
It is New York's newest black market I am talking about cigarettes puritanical.
Welcome -- swallow.
That's our show.
People say America's a free country but.
You want to have a drink a cigarette maker bat.
Lots of people want to stop you keep you pure.
Protect you from yourself.
The puritans were big on that.
The brits that came to Massachusetts Bay came to America because they -- that fancy ceremony required by the church of England and wanted to purify the church.
And also they were big on individual staying pure they said pleasure and -- sure your sinful.
Have sex with someone else's wife you were put -- stocks.
Today Americans are no longer punished for adultery but there are new campaigns against all sorts of other -- Let's start with a law most all of you say is good and needed.
The law against drunk driving.
Drunk drivers to kill also the federal government -- a hard limit and how much alcohol you may have in your blood and still legally -- so.
Is that limit set at the right level.
I S special correspondent Kennedy did drink and drive.
We're gonna have you -- this course so worked then we're gonna does she look without -- and then heavy driving drunk.
My dream come true.
She did her drinking and driving under the supervision of the Los Angeles county sheriff's office sober she had no trouble driving between cones and parking between.
So she -- the -- Let the games begin she -- most of unsupported and then it to -- And then another models.
It's really shocking how little -- it takes to.
He considered one drink I don't do what went on no interest and accountability -- -- much of a drinker and at this point it was clear she was feeling it.
We have been -- -- The detective gave her the -- -- tests.
Anyway at a point point 043.
So my don't know under point 3610 of the vehicle code anything under 05 -- -- not under the influence but Kennedy was feeling at least buzz -- Public service announcements say buzzed driving -- drum track.
Don't do what Kennedy did it and did pretty well.
Watching her driving you would not know she was -- me.
So she drank more can't hear anything.
It's had a few drinks says more than I ever drank in my life safety to get the -- -- -- look great here but then.
Definitely impairment -- -- -- sway and -- don't this time she flunked the -- boys -- -- 129.
That higher than point oh I think yes that's what I don't think she flunked the walking the learning test.
-- -- -- -- -- -- And when she drove.
She was a mess.
-- OK there's -- home.
-- Abraham Bolden is another look at the closed and people.
They'd be -- it's just -- did.
Pedestrians definitely impairment.
Definitely be going to.
-- -- He's sober up now -- -- -- not going to jail so what you learned.
I learned that.
I felt a lot more drunk than I actually was after three drinks and I took the second breath lies there.
I may tell him and I would never got in the -- was shocked that I only blue and we sell Platte police absolutely.
But you may be different from normal people you're not a drinker also -- -- drink a little bit on -- a moderate drinker or not this back out there by this -- -- Seven drinks to be considered drunk.
And also we should be clear to the audience what the government calls drink is one and a half ounces most -- at a bar yet more.
To -- it it would it would have been four ounces of champagne.
And one and half ounces tequila or hard alcohol and you are served more than that at your average bar so.
What you think is one -- can actually be closer to two.
Then you know your four drinks in that -- get behind the wheel thinking you've only had to drinking against the -- moderate drinks and that some people have problems.
Parts of government has this -- it keeps playing with a changing it to the pressure is always tighter in tight here.
You live in Los Angeles where they have lots of these check points looking for drunk drivers and -- become skeptical about the.
I'm skeptical after this because I realize that it really is an arbitrary number because I felt drunk well under the legal limit some like to drink twice as much as -- And handle car twice as as well as I could.
And checkpoints have unintended consequences.
They did -- because you're taking on force and off the streets on Friday and Saturday nights and busy holidays where other crimes are a current.
But now people -- using social media to let other drivers know where the do you -- checkpoints are.
Some critics say that's just encouraging people to drive drunk but there are others -- say no it actually tells you that -- are police out there don't drink contract.
Really -- -- -- say avoid that road anyway thank you Kennedy.
Now let's go back to that controversy over what should the legal blood alcohol level being -- -- federal limit is currently point 08 down from the earlier limit of point one at all.
Now the feds want to lower it point 05.
It'll save lives they say and the police are eager to punish drunk drivers.
There's nowhere to -- it if you drive drunk.
Cops everywhere -- stepping up -- friends and -- like never before.
Americans support police cracking down but.
Journalists Ridley Balco says if we really care about road safety and saving lives.
We should abolish drunk driving laws so -- -- Yeah well you know -- the idea here is not to encourage drunk driving of course but -- but.
The the idea is to improve highway safety to make the roads safer and I think you do that by.
Attacking reckless driving not -- whatever it was that was causing the reckless driving to begin with my problem -- just.
-- saying that it should be illegal to have alcohol in your system while you're behind the wheel even if you're not doing anything else wrong.
The only way you can force that is through these very intrusive measures including you know having -- draw blood on the side of the road or setting up these checkpoints which you know.
What -- cops look into your car which can lead all sorts of other infractions.
So -- might point basically is we should focus on the distraction that's what the danger is.
And focus on the the recklessness.
And not on you know whatever was it was -- causing recklessness.
The government does say that sleep deprivation is as much of a cause or more than alcohol also having the kids in the back seat.
Or the radio that distracts me the GPS system eating -- -- immediately give -- two scenarios John one you have a person -- let's say -- blood alcohol is point 81.
You know and they're driving home at night they.
Get pulled over because you know they're driving it 2 AM a time when there are drunk drivers on the road and maybe -- you know.
To a rolling stop instead of coming to a complete stop at a stop sign.
That person gets pulled over they both point out eight point 81 and basically you know did it it.
Ruined her life and a lot of ways -- this is severely -- anyway.
You know you -- use -- go to jail you get the fines you have to go to you know alcohol rehab classes.
In some states.
And then you get a person let's say who hasn't slept in a long time maybe a truck driver is behind the wheel and is impaired because of a lack of sleep.
And you know that truck driver blows a red light and you know hit somebody.
That that level of distraction level destruction of -- obviously there's actually worse then you know most of president then the the minimum center for -- blood alcohol level.
And that person is not going to get the same sort of punishment that the drunk driver gets.
So my point is that you know that should be be -- the recklessness.
Of the act itself now if you -- -- attack on extra penalties because somebody was drunk.
After you get them whatever infraction they committed that's -- another story and -- -- as the Kennedy pointed out when.
The federal government lowered the national blood alcohol.
Level from minimum level from point 102 point 08.
Don't driving deaths had been in decline and steep decline for about twenty years and I think a good explanation for that would be that when.
Groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving to their credit and put on these massive public relations campaign saying.
You know this is -- a joke anymore than the other time in the US truce that was sort of considered amusing to see a drunk stumbling out -- -- his car.
And they -- they were successful they really change public attitudes about it.
I think that have a lot more effect on on the drop in fatalities then then you know changing the laws a more aggressive enforcement did.
So let's bring JT Griffin into this he's -- mothers against strong driving and AJD what JT what Bradley saying is that it's -- publicity campaign and not your law.
No no that's that's not true at all in fact what what is been shown to bring down drunk driving fatalities.
Is actually strong law enforcement.
Coupled with strong laws.
Are are shown to bring down highway fatalities.
Especially with regard to drunk driving.
And what rally said -- -- Mothers Against Drunk Driving is true highway fatalities.
Involving drunk drivers have fallen by over 50% and that's due to.
Which wrong laws -- that -- passed -- has worked to pass including the point 08 standard.
I don't see how you know that maybe just was your campaign.
Well you can look at you can look in these laws have been studied.
Things like point 08 things like zero tolerance.
Right now we have a new campaign to eliminate drunk driving.
Which is based on ignition in her locks for all convicted drunk drivers.
In advance technology which one day we think well actually.
Stop -- drunk driver from even operating his or her vehicle.
So we really check that he's -- guy is drunk ends.
Did you couldn't start the car.
But sometimes it would miss fire and sober people wouldn't get -- drive what at the passengers strong it might protect his -- hit it that the technologies being examined error is being developed to focus solely on the driver not on the passenger drunk driving is responsible for a third of all highway fatalities.
And there's other issues that you mentioned Marcus -- -- drunk driving is involved meeting after -- they found alcohol but it didn't necessarily mean it costs that.
I think you can look at what's happening across the country and and you look.
That that it it is a cause and we know that when somebody is at point oh wait clearly it is one of the most studied.
-- flaws in the country in the world.
And we know that when somebody is that point no way we know that they're too impaired to drive Bradley last turn out.
That yet that statistic those are alcohol those are considered alcohol related fatalities and that's often.
In her changed with drunk driving fatalities and they're two different things alcohol related just means that.
Someone involved in the accident had alcohol in their system and it doesn't necessarily mean that somebody was drunk.
Or over the legal limit.
Tasks if they have alcohol in the system you can't test if they're yelling at the kids or struggling with the dog in the car.
It's harder to measure thank you Bradley Balco and JT Griffin up next.
I like to gamble but some politicians.
Want that ban.
If your kids gamble -- -- three to four times more likely to steal.
Oh my goodness -- online gambling make that even worse.
We debate that next.
-- -- -- -- Okay.
I like to -- all that's my periodic poker game.
But I'll bet on all kinds of things politics sports which rain drop will drop -- in the window of the car.
Fortunately in my state that kind of social gambling is legal but in half the states is not an -- most of America organized gambling illegal.
An Internet gambling to span I'm told it must be because as one US senator put it it's the crack cocaine of -- Internet poker briefly thrived in America but on the government shut down the big gambling sites.
Go to them from the United States now when you see this notice from the Department of Homeland Security.
I thought they were supposed to protect me from terrorists not poker player.
Europe is more free then America on this here's that same company's European site which Americans are not allowed to use.
And that's a shame says Michelle -- and of the Competitive Enterprise Institute she says let Americans have some fun let.
And -- let American businesses make the money.
But no don't says John cans of the University of Illinois he's testified before congress on what.
Gambling especially Internet gambling must be banned.
I think that we're not talking fun and games here we're not talking a libertarian issues we're talking about a serious economic issue here we're not talking about -- games.
Shouldn't people be free eight to.
It is a libertarian issue.
I like to play card games everybody likes to play games but what we're really talking about potential.
National security issue.
And that's what came out in seven years of congressional hearings we publish that US international gambling report.
These it's it's not a fun -- games issue.
A national security issue I think this is just power mad politicians who want to control people.
How is national security at risk -- -- it's an economic.
National security issue.
This widespread Internet gambling would do exactly what that commodities futures modernization act did when -- eliminated all of the anti gambling provisions.
Four Wall Street it caused the debacle that we had four years ago.
Widespread Internet gambling would destabilize financial systems economic systems it would created huge speculative bubble it would look great for awhile and then it -- all collapse.
Michelle this argument seems thin -- may but his side is winning.
Well see I actually agree with professor cans on one thing this isn't a fun and games issue -- talking about -- -- Should people be able to play gamma should be able you had a let's play poker online is it dangerous we're talking about is an individual's right to exercise his or her own judgment.
Use their own money to decide what they want to do it that.
It should be legal because it's an issue of freedom adults -- earn money should have the right to spend it however they want so long as they're not harming another person.
What about the argument that this is.
Like crack cocaine the -- turn it gaming and kids will get addicted.
People think gambling since the dawn of time in America developing gambling since pre colonial times and yet if you look at the rates of pathological gambling in this country.
It's less than 1% and that includes children who gamble.
So even if we had Internet gambling I don't see it that the rates of pathological gambling would increase that much to cause the crisis that the professors talking.
I -- the public service announcements do you paid for by the government often do try to convey what John is worried about.
I try to persuade him.
In the morning time to its -- -- -- Steinbrenner it's.
-- If -- kids gamble they're playing with more than.
Three times more likely.
Four times more likely to smoke.
Twice as likely to use of an illegal drug.
Give me a break John there beat if they gamble they'll use alcohol and illegal drugs it just leads the kind of people who gamble probably already.
Have are more adventure -- to some extent I would agree with you on that.
In fact but the way to think about this is to compare addictive gambling which is recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as the first addictive behavior.
Medical professions very concerned about this and it shows in the studies show that when you have gambling facilities electronic gambling in particular.
Which is what the national gambling impact study commission calls -- crack cocaine and creating new addicted gamblers.
And then when you put this on the Internet it's going to be -- every living room.
At every work desk at every school desk and on every cell phone Michelle you say this is entertainment just like Kara.
-- -- -- -- -- -- benefits way beyond just the entertainment factor of gambling especially for talking about poker.
It got helps you learn statistical analysis it deals with conflict resolution it teaches patients.
I think some kids especially for talking -- playing poker at their families are not necessarily casinos.
Could benefit greatly by playing games like poker that encourage focus and strategic thinking -- long term -- John.
And what about that.
We're really talking about the battle for the future we're talking about economic security.
Economic stability and expectations this -- supported by the national association of attorney generals who supported by the national gambling impact study commission.
Unlawful Internet gambling enforcement act passed the congress with -- over 80% in the house OK I if I get -- -- that politicians.
Don't want has sent you and ask of these arguments and they get to use force thank you John and Michelle later in the show a similar debate about paying for sex most Americans say that's bad.
-- -- homeland SX live feeds just for money.
I really don't you model for money gets the same thing sex is different sexes more into the we are still showing your body are ex exploiting yourself I TSA -- it says is what I would like to do.
And should there -- -- restrictions on violent video game.
Art video games to blame for gun violence in this country.
-- That's from a very popular video game that kids love but might it turn them in the killers whenever there's a mass shooting.
People say violent video games probably inspired.
These are people who have been trained on video games and gaming industry is just like the tobacco industry -- years ago when they failed to see.
That there was a connection between smoking cigarettes and cancer.
That was senator Grassley from Iowa and he's writes is Franklin Graham son of Billy Graham he took over his father's ministry.
So why do you think he's right.
Well for the first of all John god.
God understands violence.
His son Jesus Christ was nailed.
To a tree.
For our sins and -- for our sins and god raised in the life god understands.
Violence and we see violence all around us but an -- and our country John and then the last 3040 years.
Violence has come into our homes in the form of entertainment.
And it is is it is you know when I was growing up it was.
The gun smoke -- Marshal Dillon and the only pulled out his gun to to protect and to save life and the good guys always one.
But it's a far cry from the video games that we have today.
And what we see on television from from Hollywood every night the gun is glorify it well what do you -- -- do you wanna ban on.
Well you know it would -- we have of course constitution and -- the we will be able to do that.
But we certainly can tax and John we we can tax violence and why don't we try that.
-- we we do that to cigarettes alcohol why not want my tax violence and give the money to the people that are that are of the victims.
I noticed that the head of the National Rifle Association degrees -- points he says the video games business is a corrupt industry.
And just goes violence.
Against its own people.
Violent video games.
About killing people as a way to get your kicks.
Really the filthy -- form not repeat.
It's filthy poor and sowing violence and -- -- right to defend gun rights but there's no good evidence that video games.
I push back to both of you.
-- -- On and I appreciate that listen I've had -- guns all my life my father gave me my first -- when I was nine years old.
Everyone I grew up with -- guns but within go around shooting people.
These young kids want to dress like factors is Syrian TV -- what they see in these video games.
And the arm themselves with some of these rifles and guns and they go out.
And they commit these of these killings it is -- -- -- it's it's a car carrying but our entire nation has become a wall -- -- -- -- -- -- for entertainment.
Like the Romans.
You talk about all this stuff coming into our homes in the past 3040 years and you're right there's much more violence -- and much more horrible.
But crime is -- -- Youth offenses are down.
Maybe it's good for kids.
We don't know beyond.
I would say it's not good for anybody.
Two to walk to murder these video games to -- are our murder simulators as what they are and it's very dangerous John very dangerous.
They watched twice as many of these video games and the murder rate is is a fraction you look at crime per 100000 people.
I tend firearm deaths in the United States less than one in Japan and so on.
There's just no evidence that part that we're playing the games causes people to run around and -- people.
John understand what you're saying.
And I agree with you.
That we do need evidence okay we need to have a national study of this.
-- but yet -- that we don't really have one under way at this time as far as I know that the president and congress need to get behind.
And trying to find a way to curb violence.
It's an epidemic in our country and how -- we stop this we need God's help John we really do.
In the 1950s.
The villain was the comic book the senate claimed comics were causing too little long juvenile delinquency.
And a one hearing -- so called forensic scientists said one common.
Promotes sadistic fantasies to kids.
That comic was -- It I don't know and they may be may be those comic books and they did have negative impact I really don't know.
But we don't know unless we have a study doing.
And within our government has not focused and all that I can't imagine what more study we -- have moved -- the other than the fact that the games are more popular and crime is down but.
Thank you Franklin Graham when we return we move from violence to -- Should pay for it be illegal.
These girls to go out on dates.
Didn't give up sex and it's fine but -- -- -- a hundred dollar bill on the Dresser there's something wrong with.
How would discourage you moral behavior but how should that be done.
It's great when parents still -- friends and family shame someone but government.
You're not being moral if you abstain from sin only because it's illegal.
Worse laws banning things drugs sex work don't.
Stop -- from happening often not lost cause new problems because they create horrible black markets.
So some politicians now say we will -- ban the activity will just tax it.
That's what Billy Graham's son just said he wants to do with video games use -- to nudge people toward good behavior.
But Michael Thomas says that's a bad idea he coauthored -- Qaeda center study of sin taxes so.
What's wrong with just given a little knowledge with taxes one of president Obama's advisors has pushed this said.
We libertarians should be OK with since -- libertarian.
And banning thing.
Well it's still paternalism and so when you go from an outright prohibition.
That's bad we know that doesn't work -- black markets.
Then we go too taxing which in the cigarette example in New York also causes black markets so this other idea libertarian paternalism was supposed to be another alternative.
But it's kind of a contradiction in terms.
And a high cigarette taxes have caused problems they give people incentive to break the law.
It is New York's newest black market I'm not talking about -- is or drugs I am talking about cigarettes.
People smuggled cigarettes now -- -- in mice to hate that the tax alone is five dollars 34 cents per pack.
And that makes for eleven dollar pack.
-- -- the Tax Foundation collected cigarette -- from around the country and tunnel that.
Most of them were illegal.
That's right John so when they went around and picked up.
That's cigarette packs all were New York City they found that 61% of them either had no tax stamp on them at all or what were from a -- -- from another -- My mirror in this town said we're just not gonna let you buy soda and bottles this big this this is banned Betancourt is stopped him so far -- that'll be out except there's just as much sugar in apple juice which will be legal.
The idea is that the the harm that's coming from the shoulders right you -- tax that -- gonna change behavior but people can get it anywhere they want in economics that's called substitutes.
And Indiana enough forces convenience stores to sell beer that's a war.
What's that about.
People would -- -- this -- say that in the store if the kids to see the beer in the cooler next to them to the cooling and then they're going to somehow equate the two.
But walking by and in the aisle when it's warm that's not gonna have the same impact on and -- -- that if you buy it wore me you're not gonna drink it in the car some.
Yes or -- imperial drink right away people that are highly motivated to drink I don't think it would be discouraged this way and those of us with patients just -- ahead of time.
So having done the study what's your bottom line on us.
I think of it.
It's certainly an improvement over prohibition.
To tax people but it will be better just educated and give people choice thank you Michael Thomas coming up -- is okay in America.
Sachs has become OK but sex work 641.
-- -- -- She works at the luxury tour of 28 legal brothels and -- Dennis Hoff is your boss.
-- -- You're exploiting these -- I'm not a -- I have a licenses.
-- -- license.
Sex for money or prostitution is legal in much of the war.
But not in America.
Here if a woman wants to be paid for sex the police by lock her up and silly reporters say things like this.
Jail just maybe -- safest place these high end hookers have -- been.
More importantly where six work is legal there's little danger here in Nevada for example -- safe.
We will probably shared patents.
Brooke Taylor joins us now along with another legal sex worker -- Summers they work at -- bunny ranch which is owned by.
Dennis -- so.
Tennis explain the law -- it's illegal in Las Vegas but in the rest of no matter most of Nevada.
-- in the in the 1850s.
From Virginia city who it was tolerant.
With the gaming cartel -- we don't want it in Las Vegas we don't want in Reno the population -- So it's it's legal in the fifteen rural counties but not with two major population of so you have your brothel will be the bunny ranch and he have 500 licensed.
Sex workers crack.
Fifty working at a time correct.
This is disgusting to people wanted to do and we've got it -- the rest of the country's got it wrong it is if the hypocrite politicians would wake up.
Every state would have a buddy -- and hi Brooke -- -- -- that you're selling your body it just feels sleazy demeaning to people.
Really I'm renting it.
Selling implies that they own and I still own myself.
The beauty about this country is that I -- -- Live my life based on my morals and my values as long as I'm doing so only -- -- Q how he's an event and a lot and yes I I moved from the midwest to be able to do within the confines of a loss of their for my moral choices.
Really are on me I don't find it discuss -- I can respect someone else's opinion but I don't tell them what to do with their body.
It -- I'm -- sex workers do it because you have no other options that is completely unsure I do have other options I have a double major from the University of Michigan.
If I want an old college -- -- yes if I wanted to leave the business tomorrow I could leave tomorrow on the final what you do this as signing Sarah accident break into the bunny ranch -- still owns almost going to do fall.
So I contacted down Lance and -- like one -- and mean I can do events but it's groups.
It's completely say twos sons it's it's -- to some might think that's probably been.
Biggest problem in this country is that we -- sexuality has been a gross thing and it's not.
-- everybody does and it's not but paying for it is.
To some but not too long -- if it was gross to every one we wouldn't be in -- This let's bring -- your opponents into this conversation Fred TC -- to be a federal prosecutors Philadelphia you've heard what these women and their employers.
Say how are they wrong.
I'm not gonna judge and that -- my shtick but I will say that is as a prosecutor and as someone who's done this -- I think the law should make it more difficult outside of where they are.
But it isn't actually illegal.
It's right I appreciate -- because I.
Dislike illegal prostitution also and that's your frame of reference but people.
People are going to do this and they need that that didn't try Google searching Philadelphia.
A zillion things come up.
That we don't have that -- the counties where it's legal in Nevada because it is legal in the men have a place to go.
Instead of getting involved in illegal sex trafficking in typically that's of underage children.
Yeah Fred that's a good point but it doesn't make it go way people are gonna kill people but that doesn't mean we make murder they'll -- made -- difference there that's.
Always somebody else's freedom it's gonna happen one way or the other so you don't like exploitation you don't like pimps you don't like new drugs.
Then because these these pimps to take this money put it back into other criminal enterprises which you know better than anybody and if you lead a quiet day on the floor we -- -- let let him answer comes are going head for a.
No no but -- but I am I hearing you saying and that's the same argument is made about legalizing drugs if you've ever spent time in -- LC levels benefited prohibition right exactly but might put it.
But the point is sustaining it and those those illegal operation should be shut down and and they should be struck and I'll tell you right here.
When I don't mean as business guys like me look I can get lucky in a woman's prison with a -- more pardons -- yeah you're coming from pitching good at the Nancy's.
-- yeah I hear -- there well that it but the point is is that what.
I'd like it would still make it legal would data until add to temptation for anybody who's out there to kind of engage in -- when everyone and I think that's a mistake.
Should we restore prohibition.
Now the -- now I wouldn't -- to her probation.
I would think it's the same argument here but we're out of time they -- Fred candidates draw thanks -- -- -- come visit.
Coming up a new law mandates that porn stars must Wear condoms.
Will this protect people.
-- -- suggest another dumb idea from the appearance.
That's what likely explains the adult film boom in venture accounting.
Paying for sex is illegal in almost all of America but paying to watch sex is not.
Pornography is a huge business.
For years it was Saturday in Los Angeles but that's changed his last year LA passed a law.
Requiring all porn stars to Wear condoms.
And that's a great things -- doctor Jeffrey closer professor of public health at UCLA.
Paul -- -- a lawyer who represents film companies that make -- so Paul what's your problem condoms protect.
People well superficially that sounds like logical thing.
The problem is that in the past there was testing involved in Los Angeles rigorous testing of all the adult.
Porn stars if you will test inferred sexually transmitted disease case of HIV.
Exactly and there -- that no cases of HIV since 2004.
What's happening now is instead of having.
The testing process that makes sense -- rules and regulations.
Now they've driven the business underground or to other states where there are no rules.
And so it makes no sense so if the goal was to protect the workers it's exactly the opposite result.
And the customers.
By and large don't wanna watch sex films were -- actors were -- The others no doubt about that what happened is after the the initial aids scare.
A number of the companies went to condoms.
And over 30% of the market disappeared.
Jeffrey what about that it sounds like you're just moving the business.
To other places.
Well although not all purpose a measure B was to protect the help the workers.
This CDC did a study last year and found that 25%.
Of adult film workers had.
Gonorrhea of the throat so the current testing system.
Woefully inadequate to protect the workers this is a legal.
Industry people are making money.
The workers' activities and those workers are continuously being exposed.
To infections -- on a daily basis so was part of a reasonable approach -- that.
Condoms as an additional measure so protect the -- the work.
-- but the adult industry has a lesser percentage.
Of mass TDs than the population as a whole and as a matter of fact that's simple -- -- that it hasn't got a little delayed as -- -- also they have staying.
As their unresolved.
Test stating I got a -- -- make my statement.
He has no statistics that demonstrate.
That any of these diseases are occurring as a result of the adult industry.
They may be discovered.
On people who are in the adult industry and and the population as a whole and the question is did they get them in their private life.
He he tries to make it look like they got them in the adult industry they have no such -- That did not happen.
They had testing now they don't have testing because they've moved out of California in and other places so the protections that where there are gone.
Jeffrey a Los Angeles law doesn't seem to -- much the industry is simply left Los Angeles we have this clip about that.
That's what likely explains the adult film boom and then turn -- -- 90% of the world's legal poured a shot of the San Fernando Valley that equals more than thirteen billion in revenue.
What makes you think another law we'll just make things very -- people in Los Angeles are losing money because of your band not the party and.
-- telling -- 57%.
