Drug reform chances better than at any time in memory

I've been talking at some length to various figures in the drug law reform movement for the last couple of days for an article I'm preparing for next Sunday's Commentary section of the Register, and almost everybody agrees that the chances for significant reform are better than at almost any time anybody can remember. It seems only peripherally related to Obama, and it's worth noting that what Obama has done so far -- promised to stop DEA raids on dispensaries in states with medical marijuana laws and appointing the Seattle police chief, who has not actively resisted reform as drug czar -- has been exceedingly modest. Yet there's apparently a pent-up demand for serious reform that was essentially kept muted as simply impossible to consider during the Clinton and Bush years, when only fanatic drug warriors held positions of influence. And the discussion has moved quickly beyond medicalization and decriminalization to legalization. As Dale Gieringer, head of Cal NORML, told me, it surprised even him -- although he still thinks it will take years just to get marijuana legal. But I'm starting to see light at the end of the drug war tunnel.

6、7月失業率,主計處預估恐怕飆到6%,這也讓即將畢業的大學生壓力越來越大,今天台大醫學院商標申請首度舉行徵才博覽會幫學生找工作,26家企業總計釋出超過4百個職缺,吸引不少學生來找機會,不過現場引人注目的是大陸攤位,對岸委託台灣的人力銀行來挖角,開出年薪1千2百萬要找台灣醫療院所的院長到大陸去發展。


填表格、找工作,一個個申請專利小攤位都是企業主來徵才,台大醫學院首度舉行就職博覽會,26家企業釋出超過4百個職缺,不少畢業生來找機會。畢業生:「先做工作這樣子。」記者:「是不是說有工作先卡位?」畢業生:「也不是先卡位,先累積一些經驗。」

有醫院、有生技公司,律師諮詢最引人注目的是這個,對岸獵人頭獵到台灣來,年薪1200萬要找院長,還有其他高階醫療職缺,平均薪資比台灣多2成。記者:「已經有在動作?」人力銀行業者:「是的,是有在動作,基本上,他所要求的是當舖融資院長級職。」

來挖角到對岸,薪資和發展是一大誘因,畢竟5月份失業率高達5.82%,6、7月恐怕會飆到6%。學生:「比較會繼續升學,沒升學就是他先找到工作。」

有不少大學生擔心沒工作,乾脆繼續留在學校,這類族群也被稱為是不願長大的小飛俠,主計處統計今年延畢的學生多達113萬人,存證信函範例創下紀錄。
