The addresses were included in the Greenbelt PD weekly police blotter, which was undoubtedly one of the sources for this story; anybody can sign up to receive the weekly blotter e-mail. It was quite a shock to me to learn that I live across from one of these establishments!

We seriously need to just legalize this. That way the police can focus on real crime rather than private contracts between consenting adults. It's so stupid that they have to constantly harass these girls.
