    Demand Reduction confers equal responsibility for the crime of human trafficking onto both the johns who purchase sex from traffickers and traffickers who sell it. Legislation is pending in some states prosecuting arrested johns and traffickers at the same level of legal liability in the commission of human trafficking. It is my belief that since demand drives supply in any economy, we will be hindered in the eradication of human trafficking until we prosecute both johns AND pimps legally as human traffickers.
