TEXAS TO BE FIRST STATE TO MAKE BUYING SEX A FELONY
While many states seem to be relaxing many laws such as cannabis prosecution, Texas seems to be GOING BACKWARDS. Cannabis is still illegal, and now starting in September, IT WILL BE A FELONY to pay for sex with money. Everything's bigger and "better" in Texas (especially the for profit prisons)? What a complete waste of taxpayer and law enforcement time and money. Just another way to fuck people out of money and their life.

"(The Center Square) – A new law that goes into effect Sept. 1 will make Texas the first state to punish sex buyers with a felony.

HB 1540 was filed by state Rep. Senfronia Thompson, D-Houston. It passed both chambers of the state legislature and was signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott.

The new law creates a separate offense for buying sex and raises the penalty to a state felony subject to jail time. It expands first-degree felony human trafficking to include certain actions related to obtaining victims from shelters or certain residential facilities. It also requires the state to deny some alcoholic beverage licenses and permits if drink solicitation occurs. It also amends provisions governing common nuisance lawsuits relating to prostitution and illegal massage operations, and amends provisions on civil racketeering relating to human trafficking.

The bill also includes a trespassing offense for those who traffic through a residential treatment center. Traffickers are targeting these centers, the House Research Organization bill analysis states, in order to lure and recruit children. The bill gives law enforcement “another tool to combat this through the trespassing statute and by expanding child safety, drug-free, and gang-free zones,” it states.

“Texas is the first in the country to punish sex buyers with felonies, which is a substantial step towards curbing the demand for commercial sex,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement. “Human trafficking is modern day slavery – targeting vulnerable men, women and children in our communities. I commend our legislature for passing laws that fight this inexcusable offense.”

Can't the hookers just sell a "pencil" to the john?

Hooker: I have a pencil to sell, and if you buy it, I'll show you great appreciation!
John: Ok! <buys pencil for $150>
Hooker: <shows appreciation>

Seems like such an easy work-around, it wouldn't be worth going after.
