Attracting smart, young FBI employees is getting tougher and tougher due to the strict marijuana policy.
Mr. Comey said that the agency was “grappling with the question right now” of how to amend the agency’s marijuana policies, which excludes from consideration anyone who has smoked marijuana in the previous three years, according to the FBI’s Web site. One conference goer asked Mr. Comey about a friend who had shied away from applying because of the policy. “He should go ahead and apply,” despite the marijuana use.

So Jiffy Sessions hauls him in, and Comey explained his comments. Funny isn't it that old men like Jiffy and his ilk would apparently rather have an alcoholic who comes in with the shakes every morning and has a martini at lunch just to feel normal behind a keyboard than a bright, responsible, and occasional user of pot.
Comey is correct, ditch the 3 year policy.. it's ridiculous especially with legalization in several states medicinally and/or recreationally. We are missing out on a ton of potential talent.
