WASHINGTON, D.C.- So, can you smoke a j and turn in that application to the FBI?

Turns out, no. Some were surprised to hear FBI director James Comey admit that the agency might have to relax their strict no-tolerance policy on ganja because apparently he said some of the best cyber crime fighters “want to smoke weed on the way to the interview.”

So will the FBI hire these toking techies? Well, the smoke must have cleared — because now Comey’s set the record straight.

‘I am absolutely dead set against using marijuana,’ he said. ‘I don’t want young people to use marijuana. It’s against the law.”

Well okay, then. Thanks for clearing the haze on that one, Director.
