The FBI Was 'Just Kidding' About Hiring Marijuana-Smoking Hackers

The FBI says it was "just kidding" about hiring stoned hackers because it couldn't find any who didn't smoke weed.

FBI Director James Comey said he was only trying to be funny when he said the agency would consider hiring those who've smoked pot (see above).

The story made international headlines, after Comey said finding hackers to working within the organisation was difficult because of the prevalence of drug use.

So if you've already sent your confessional cover letter... smoke em if you've got em.
