Exclamation Fieger suggests Detroit become hip by decriminalizing prostitution and pot

This would be Sweet another Vegas Mayor!!!!

By: WXYZ.com Web Staff
DETROIT (WXYZ) - Geoffrey Fieger is always making headlines. This time he's suggesting Detroit should be like Amsterdam - where cannabis can be bought in coffee shops and prostitution is legal.

He says Detroit should become a hip, young and exciting city.

The famed attorney, and potential mayoral candidate in Detroit, says this is what could work for the struggling city.

Fieger says traditional ideas like tax breaks for corporations just aren’t working to bring people into Detroit.

He says his vision is simple - a clean and safe city, with good parks, mixed in with some adult entertainment.

Fieger says he’s stil considering a run for Mayor. He says he’ll do it if Mayor Dave Bing decides not to run.

He says the incumbent gets a real leg-up in the race.

He looks like he spent some time in Amsterdam not long before that pic. I think his bro would come back from the grave and get him for not promoing it earlier anyway.

you can either spend money on enforcing those laws or generate revenue by taxing them.
