The San Francisco measure to decriminalize prostitution, or Measure K, was on the November 4, 2008 ballot in San Francisco, California. The measure seeks to have police forces cease enforcing laws regarding prostitution.

Text of Measure

Shall the City: stop enforcing laws against prostitution; stop funding or supporting the First Offender Prostitution Program or any similar anti-prostitution program; enforce existing criminal laws that prohibit crimes such as battery, extortion and rape, regardless of the victim's status as a sex worker; and fully disclose the investigation and prosecution of violent crimes against sex workers?[1]
