Many Arizona Republicans believe climate change is a hoax but are apparently worried about legal pornography.

On Thursday, AZ Central wrote that lawmakers in Arizona are pushing forward measures that regard pornography usage as a “public health crisis.” Specifically, supporters of the bill are claiming that pornographic videos can become biologically addictive and lead to violent sexual behaviors.

Democratic lawmakers in the State House of Representatives are stating that pornography is a problem but that there is not enough scientific evidence available to label it as a “public health crisis.”

“[Rep. Kelli Butler] questioned why, if proponents are concerned about the sexual exploitation and health of minors, they aren't calling for better sex education in schools.”

The call for a further study by Democrats also shows for a need to reorder priorities amongst Arizona lawmakers.
