Legal Polygamy?

A study by the Justice Department strongly criticizes the effectiveness of polygamy being illegal. The flat out states that the criminalizationis utterly ineffectual, and that more needs to be done to combat the evils of the behaviors, and not the institution. One quote from the article is particularly blunt:

Criminalization does not address the harms associated with valid foreign polygamous marriages and plural unions, in particular the harms to women,

True, this is a report of the Canadian Justice Department. But, given how close our cultures are, I seriously doubt that there are more differences than similarities in the inanity of criminalizing a particular type of personal relationship.
