Weed Smokers Needed By FBI
A hilarious dilemma for the FBI is that they need hacking experts but the best guys are young and tend to smoke weed and FBI rules prohibit it from hiring anyone who’s smoked weed in the previous three years.
“I have to hire a great workforce and some of those kids want to smoke weed on the way to the interview,” says FBI boss James Comey.
However Comey is clearly thinking about breaking the rules. Asked at a New York conference if a weed smoking person should apply for a job at the FBI, Comey replied: “He should go ahead and apply.”
