WSJ: FBI “Grappling” With Policy To Not Hire Pot Users

The Wall Street Journal reports that although the FBI has been authorized by Congress to hire 2,000 people to help fight cyber-crime, they may have trouble filling those positions as a “lot of the nation’s top computer programmers and hacking gurus are also fond of marijuana.”

The problem is that the FBI has a strict policy not to hire anyone who has smoked pot in the past 3 years.

The FBI Director was quoted as saying:

“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…”

On the way to the interview? The interview with the FBI? Everything we’ve learned from spy movies has changed!

3 More Examples Of Interviews For Which You May Not Wish To Smoke Pot Beforehand

1. An interview to walk the dogs at the School For Drug-Sniffing Rottweilers.

2. An interview for the Hot Dog Cart next-door to the School For Drug-Sniffing Rottweilers. If you’re asked to demonstrate your chef skills, you’re likely to smell like sausage and drugs! Why are you even there – you do not want that job.

3. Interview for a position working with a drug lord for the position of Salesperson In Charge Of Selling To Computer Programmers and Hacking Gurus. First off, you’re showing you may be tempted to take some of the product yourself. Secondly, you will totally be suspected to be a narc now that every Wall Street Journal reader knows that may be a sign you’ve also been interviewing with the FBI.
