(FOX NEWS) – Florida lawmakers on Tuesday declared pornography a health risk, and called for more research on its effects.

The House of Representatives approved a resolution, which states there needs to be more education, research and policy changes to protect Florida residents from porn.

“Research has found a correlation between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, difficulty forming and maintaining intimate relationships, unhealthy brain development and cognitive function, and deviant, problematic or dangerous sexual behavior,” Republican Rep. Ross Spano told the state’s House Health & Human Services Committee in January.

Democratic Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith criticized Tuesday’s vote, saying there are more important issues — such as gun control — that should be looked at by the House.

“17 pp in Parkland were just murdered w/an AR-15, + the FL House just passed @RossSpano’s HR 157 declaring PORN as a public health risk,” the rep tweeted. “No, GUN VIOLENCE is a public health crisis + Spano blocked HB 219 banning assault weapons in his committee for 2 yrs.”
