You just made up that 99 out of 100 number. I don't know if there's any good info on how many street prostitutes in Hamilton are also drug addicted -- at least I can't find any. Maybe it's high but as long as prostitution is still illegal can't really find out. But it's wrong to say making prostitution legal won't help prostitutes. In Holland only 10% of prostitutes have substance abuse problems, that's the same as the rate of Canadians with substance abuse problems according to the Center for Addiction and Mental Illness. Making prostitution legal also makes it easier for prostitutes to work out of brothels instead of on the street, again in Holland most prostitutes now work out of brothels and escort agencies where the workplace is regulated. Tell me that won't help prostitutes, getting access to health care and a safe working environment.
