    ANYHOW...

    Yes, I think this will be a "one-step-at-a-time" process. Very tiny steps, but I think eventually there will be "acquired norms" that will be more and more accepting each generation.
    First of all, what you said is "All drugs will NEVER be legalized" not "it's not happening soon." That alone is proof that your opinion has been wavered.

    Not that I need to verify that to question the integrity of what you're saying, your so called "objective statement of fact" is lacking logical premesis which entail its conclusion. Which is why you've conveniently ignored all of Scarecrow's logic and barely glanced past my post too.

    I don't disagree with the notion that it wont be happening soon, but a blind acceptance of the ignorance you're allegedly devils advocating for will be the reason rather than logic. Which you've demonstrated.

    The person who got their bubble bursted was you, alpheaus, not scarecrow.

    @Person lmao

    @Vorp

    To connect the two statements: I believe it will never happen, but IF it does, it will not be soon. Logical basis? Uh, we're still sending those fuckers to prison, without any chance of immediate change hitting congress. That's the logical proof. You find this on the congressional timesheet, I'll retract the statement.

    Also, popping my bubble? Lmao, I didn't even HAVE a bubble. Unlike dankers like yourself, this subject has literally zero relevance or importance to me, and I am discussing it as a mildly interesting topic that I really care little about in the big scheme of things, having stated only cursory opinions and the status quo. By definition I couldn't have had a "bubble with this." Saying I did is merely a malapropism of the colloquial idiom.

    Fuck yeah.

    MALAPROPISM OF THE COLLOQUIAL IDIOM

    Git rekt, you fucking DANKER.

    Lol okay, I guess you don't have to have any basis besides a shakey and debateable inductive arguement, need I remind you inductive arguments always have the potential for error?

    Weird it's almost like you didn't realize inductive arguements shouldn't be taken as objective facts or something, convincing as they may be you can't literally predict the future.
    Unless of course you had a bunch of other reasons?

    You don't seem like someone who had their bubble bursted at all, dropping quips as a deflection tactic though. Not at all.

    But I see what you're saying, you don't care about the subject. After all we shouldn't want to talk about it seriously just because we care about it, we shouldn't wonder why you're stating alleged "objective facts" but then claiming the topic has zero relevance or importance to you.
    That wouldn't be convenient to you.

    No.

    This was a casual discussion of which I cared little, and spent less than 5 mins writing and thinking about each post. Either you are taking this way too serious to get snarky with me, or way too sarcastic. Which is fine, I guess. Miffs me, but fine. And ahead of time I'm not continuing this, because it won't get either of us anywhere if we try to get the last word in on something unimportant.

    This is why he's getting snarky don't you think? If you spend 5 minutes writing a post that you don't put thought into whilst others are having a rather serious conversation then you should expect something like this to happen or to be ignored completely.

    That's a very interesting article. Frankly, I'm surprised to see that it worked as well as it did. Not to sound negative, but a lot of things could've went wrong with this program and it seemed to work out for the better.

    Of course, I think there has to be some involvement of cultural or local behavior that has allowed this to work so effectively, but I'm glad that at least some country has proven the method works.

    I suppose. I honestly didn't think they were that serious about it at first, and when I posted a second time to be more in depth it was too late. I'll say that either way internet isn't always the best indicator of the tone of a discussion, which didn't help me any in figuring things out. But, it is what it is.

    its easier on SP because jutsu will almost everytime want a serious, thought provoking conversation going.

    given sometimes he does sometimes shitposts and those are difficult to detect but you'll know eventually

    The second you come in here and brashly claim to have bursted Scarecrows bubble, on any thread on stick page, it's serious. I hope I've made that important distinction for you, you shouldn't begin a casual conversation with that sort of pretention unless you're willing to debate without copping out about your alleged objective facts. Besides, you didn't seem very fond of having that shoe on the other foot.
