Perspectives people so Should i just tell you some things or you have any questions I'm happy to hear where you want to kick things off. And i'm sure i'll have one hundred questions along the way we hey i don't know i i I'm in quite an international community myself in ireland because i I studied international private school education before. And because that's i. I have some opinions about my own country because i've heard like the culture From a perspective other people and it's always interesting to hear You talk about because you always say that. We're very progressive but It doesn't always few like that when you're here i don't know so that the interesting the duero very honest and i really like i really liked radical fi. Find all these things quite treating for two reasons one. I do think. At least americans we see we see Liberal drug laws. We see sex work de stigmatized and legalized and i think those things and everybody rides. Bikes feels very environmental in that way. So i think we do this sense that it's quite liberal. But maybe those are just sort of the surface level things that you hear about right drugs and sex and bikes the big three the big trunk you. I guess that's right. Those are big headlines drugs and sex and you go see all these liberal pastor. That's not always. I can listen. It's not the depths of the better Like for example We illegal now in a little state. It still not actually legal island it. How do you say that I forget it's it's it's tolerated decriminalize. So yeah so you can actually grow weak but you people can sell it. Which makes it really weird and the backward and as like a like a citizen you can like grow like one planned but not much. More than that and yeah. It's it's a bit yeah. It's all a bit vague in that sense. But they do like that. We have legalized sex work. But it's in like the even dare not everybody likes except here right so as young people who are against up. Let's let's talk about both so with the we'd issue. I'm sensing a couple of things about it. Is this one does it. So this image. We have of like you go into a cafe and you get magic mushrooms in your tea and you smoke. The best weed ever is that more. Hey we're gonna make a lot of money off tourists but then there's maybe a different standard for citizens. Because i could see that feeling weird like a double standard in a way. I don't know it's I think the way it is like the people do also partake into drugs. But it's more of You're in your teens or in your your student. You party forbids and most people don't do a lot of it after that or don't do it at all and you do have coffee shops and you can do those things in.
