37. Yes. In every single market attended, illegal sales were part of the market.
There's no legal incentive for the market organizers to keep out people who willingly sell illegally, and as a result, 100% of the markets investigated had "vendors" in them who were selling illegally.

100%. All of them. Every. Single. One.

That's a totally open marketplace, where illegal sales are tolerated, alongside legal ones.

Imagine a swap meet, street market, farmer's market, (etc.) environment, the kind you can go to and get wallets, or crafted table decorations, or fresh produce, whatever.

Now imagine that the AG investigated, and found that at every single street market they went to, there was somebody selling child porn.

Sure, they can arrest the person selling the porn, but the concept of a "no holds barred", open market, where the market has no rules, is anathema to a society that has rules about what can be sold, where it can be sold, and how it can be sold.
