A growing number of states call porn a public health crisis
the legislation could pave the way for future steps, like keeping publicly funded internet at places like schools and libraries from being used to access porn, said Haley Halverson with the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, which is working on new model legislation for states taking those next steps.
Another new state law lets parents sue pornography makers if their kids need treatment for problems related to porn use, though it wasn't immediately clear whether anyone has made a legal challenge through it.
"Critics say scientists have questioned the resolution's assertion that 'pornography is potentially biologically addictive.'"

$44 million settlement reportedly close in Weinstein sexual misconduct harassment and assault lawsuits
"We now have an economic agreement in principal that is supported by the plaintiffs, the AG's office, the defendants and all of the insurers that, if approved, would provide significant compensation to victims, creditors and the estate, and allow the parties to avoid years of costly, time consuming and uncertain litigation on all sides," Adam Harris, a lawyer for studio co-founder Bob Weinstein, told a bankruptcy court judge in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday.
More than 15 lawsuits have been filed accusing Harvey Weinstein or the company of misconduct raketeering. The settlement would cover many of them, including a class action [!] by alleged victims and a suit by the New York attorney general.

The class-action [!] complaint accuses the company of operating like an organized crime group to conceal widespread sexual harassment and assaults.
