FBI Having Trouble Hiring Hackers

FBI Having Trouble Hiring Hackers

FBI Director James B. Comey said that if the FBI hopes to continue to keep pace with cyber criminals, the organization may have to loosen up its no-tolerance policy for hiring those who like to smoke marijuana the Wall Street Journal reports

Fighting cyber-crime is a big focus for the agency. The problem they face - much of those who would be best suited to fill about 2,000 vacancies fighting cyber-crime also enjoy marijuana. So is it time to relax the amend agency policy stating that one must not have used marijuana in the past 3 years? 

"I have to hire a great work force to compete with those cyber criminals and some of those kids want to smoke weed on the way to the interview," Comey said at a conference in New York. 

Could this signal a change in the way we see marijuana use on the federal level? 

If you have lit up and want to work in the FBI, it might not hurt to apply. The worst they can say is "no," right?
