FBI Director says he needs to hire stoners
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Crime
Stashed in: Marijuana
I thought that Federal law enforcement agencies traditionally solved this conundrum by trying to hire only Mormons... but apparently all the Mormon hackers have been hired up!
The FBI must really be out of options if they're considering this.
Congress has authorized the FBI to add 2,000 personnel to its rolls this year, and many of those new recruits will be assigned to tackle cyber crimes, a growing priority for the agency. And that’s a problem, Mr. Comey told the White Collar Crime Institute, an annual conference held at the New York City Bar Association in Manhattan. A lot of the nation’s top computer programmers and hacking gurus are also fond of marijuana. “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,” Mr. Comey said.
Mr. Comey said that the agency was “grappling with the question right now” of how to amend the agency’s marijuana policies, which excludes from consideration anyone who has smoked marijuana in the previous three years, according to the FBI’s Web site.
