It matters not what political affiliations these forward thinkers have. It's sense.
Drug users and prostitutes for the most part are commiting victimless crimes. The victims of crime in the majority of the cases come about because it's illegal. Without risk of being arrested, pimps would be as club bouncers and not have the opportunity to extort the prostitute's earnings from them. Dealers would have legit access to drugs and not be able to charge the prices they do, or cut the wraps with such carp.
All the links to organised crime and trafficking (humans and drugs) are there because of the power being in the hands of criminals, because it's illegal.
Kids are not going to be overly exposed to drug taking and prostitution, why would they. It's going on now, illegally, and for the best part of a person's day (kid or adult) they're not going to be affected by it unless wanting to be involved. Besides, Countries where pot & pros are legal don't have a problem with kids being at risk.
