The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the organization which had Whitey Bulger on its payroll, ignored Olympic gymnasts’ sexual abuse claims, and arguably had a hand in the January 6th “insurrection,” has now decided prospective agents can smoke marijuana twenty-three times and still be hired.
Activists were encouraged this summer when the FBI moved to loosen its employment restrictions for would-be agents who’ve previously used marijuana—but the agency more recently further revised the policy to add a stipulation that applicants are ineligible if they’ve used cannabis more than 24 times after turning 18.
Why 24 times specifically? The agency doesn’t explain.
I guess that explains why the FBI is so utterly and completely inept.
It simply said in an update to its job eligibility guidance that candidates who “have used marijuana or any of its various forms (e.g., cannabis, hashish (hash), hash oil, or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), synthetic or natural), in any location (domestic or foreign) regardless of the legality in that location of use, more than twenty-four (24) times after turning 18 years old is a disqualifier for FBI employment.”
FBI Undersecretary for Ganja Jeff Spicoli was unavailable for comment.
