Romania to Legalize Prostitution

In order to curb the spread of STDs and human sex-trafficking, Romanian authorities plan to legalize prostitution. Prostitution laws in Romania before the switch have been a lot like those in the United States, with the crime being punishable by fines or short prison stays, but according to this article it was considered a petty crime and only the fines were every really doled out.

Fleshbot is quick to point out that you don't see the US media rushing to cover this hot story. I think it's safe to say we can add "legalized prostitution" to the long list of things the media isn't reporting.
