FBI: Finding cybersecurity gurus is tough as many are pot heads : Tech Times

I read this article with a co-worker and we couldn’t stop cracking up.

The FBI is mulling revamping its hiring rules regarding drug use, specifically marijuana, as it’s getting tough to hire on cybersecurity gurus given the pot-smoking habit many seem to have these days.

FBI Director James B. Comey said the federal enforcement agency may have to change up its regulations regarding employee drug rules to hire on needed IT talent in its quest to fight cybersecurity threats. The FBI has the approval of Congress to add 2,000 staffers and most will be focused on cybersecurity.

But finding that many gurus who don’t have a pot habit may be tough, said Comey, during a conference Monday in New York.

“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 said.
