Should Drugs and Sex Support Libraries?

That is the question that has been raised by a commenter in Will Manley's blog Will Unwound. The proposal is to legalize marijuana and prostitution and tax them heavily to help finance publically supported libraries. Reactions are invited

The legal brothels in Nevada (which can only be foumd outside Clark County) volunteered to do this in 2008 and the state legislature freaked out. I don't see desperation levels high enough yet for this to be passed.

to raise money for libraries. it would be awesome to have some new names for those old services:
like "give me a Mark Twain" or "a Shakespeare" "or a straight Faulkner."
