FBI Chief Claims Anti-Marijuana Policy Could Cripple Hiring Hackers

Yesterday, FBI director James Comey stated that the FBI’s anti-marijuana policy could hinder the opportunity of hiring solid cyber experts. Comey said he was “grappling with the question right now” on changing the policy as not to scare off the best hackers the FBI could find.

“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 told a New York City Bar Association yesterday. An attendee of the New York City Bar Association apparently told Comey that an acquaintance of his didn’t apply because of the anti-marijuana policy, in which Comey responded with, “He should go ahead and apply.”

While it’s perfectly reasonable to stray away from an anti-weed policy in 2014, today Comey said he never really meant he’d lean off the policy in the first place. After making some headlines overnight, Comey was quoted today saying “I am absolutely dead-set against using marijuana. I did not say that I am going to change that ban.”

During today’s oversight hearing, Senator Jeff Sessions criticized James Comey’s weed-related comments made on Tuesday’s hearing. Comey slyly responded with, “I’m determined not to lose my sense of humor.” It wasn’t reported if anyone at the hearing actually laughed at that comment or not.
