Posted in: Police report record number of cannabis offenders in 2020 See in context

The National Police Agency warned that many young people are not aware of the risk of drugs due to the circulation of "positive information online" and vowed to boost cyber patrols and crack down on drug deals using social media.

So, the "positive information" is just propaganda? Or is the other way around...

And this just illustrates how our privacy is of no concern to government institutions. As if they don't even have to pretend anymore...

You know, in Japanese companies, in this case in Japanese government office, it is difficult to say "No" to what their bosses say. I guess their boss said "let's go" and they followed.

Agreed. But sooner or later, someone has to grow a spine and resist the ridiculous urges of their boss/es. Send a message up the line even if it means trouble for you. In free nations, people literally fought for their rights. I'm not saying the Japanese need to physically fight, but at least grow some spine...

Mori said, noting rights such as obtaining paid holidays, which are often not given to foreign workers here, can be restored through the negotiations.

Why on Earth can't the government and municipalities do the job of protecting workers against these widespread abuses?

This salary cut is expected to reimburse the Board of Education with approximately 137,000 yen to cover the unreported leave accumulated.

The person/s who OK'd this salary cut are reprehensible, vile, morally corrupt beings that have no place in a management role.

Among the suicides and murders of the past year, how many would not have happened were it not for Covid pushing vulnerable people over the edge. Those entrusted with ensuring a fair and equitable distribution of society’s spoils stand condemned for their mealy mouthed response to a crisis which they in no small part helped to bring about.

Exactly this!
