Utah lawmaker proposes legislation to make porn a 'public health crisis,' claims adult films are more addictive than cocaine

A Utah state senator is taking a stand against pornography, blaming skin flicks for creating a “sexually toxic environment,” increasing the demand for prostitution and ruining families.

Sen. Todd Weiler introduced his legislation on Friday, asking that the state recognize that porn is creating a public health hazard. He called for a reform to take on the “pornography epidemic that is harming the citizens of Utah and the nation.”

The politician told the Daily News that porn was more addictive than powerful drugs, and the public needed to start seeing adult films as a national epidemic.

"I have read books and I have experts tell me pornography is more difficult to overcome than cocaine," he said. 

He compares the public perception of porn to cigarettes in the early 20th century, when doctors and celebrities openly smoked and advertised them as healthy. He said he hopes to shift the public opinion on adult entertainment the same way it has on cigarettes.

Utah bought the most porn online in the U.S. in 2009, according to a Harvard Business School study.

Utah has long been plagued with porn problems, after earning the distinct title of being the No. 1 buyer of adult films in 2009. A study by Harvard Business School professor Benjamin Edelman that year showed that more than 5 out of every 1,000 households were paying for porn in the Beehive State.

“Even when I control for income, age, education and marital status, Utah residents still consume disproportionately more than people from other states,” Edelman told the Salt Lake Tribune.

Since 2009, porn searches in Utah have nearly doubled, according to Google Trends. The town of Providence has the highest number of people looking for porn online in the state.
