FBI director James Comey said this week that the bureau may be forced to change its drug policy because the U.S. could not find enough programmers who did not use marijuana to fight cyber crime.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Comey told the White Collar Crime Institute’s annual conference on Monday that it was going to be difficult to fill the 2,000 new jobs that Congress had authorized this year.
“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 explained.
“And so I believe… that we have to have — we on the federal side — a whole of government approach. We got to figure out how can we support you,” Comey continued. “You can’t arrest your way out of this problem, but arresting — for us, focusing on the international trafficking organizations that are flooding the market — is a huge part of the answer.”

That post is a disgrace to your user name.
I have had an FBI background check and security clearance for a previous job.
We are told that honesty is the best policy our entire lives, however one is a fool to admit to doing something that is frowned upon by some when a paycheck depends on it. Especially when there were no flags that would have suggested otherwise to said agency.
The problem with zero tolerance policies is it forces people to lie. Most people with security clearances are smart enough to lie about things like prior drug use.
