Positions Vacant: FBI Agent (Bring Your Own Drugs)

by | 7th, August 2007

WE need all the men we can get.”Someone who was actually an addict is probably not going to satisfy our needs,” Jeffrey J. Berkindeputy assistant director of the FBI’s security division tells the Washington Post. “Our standards are still very high. The level of drug history would still have to be something that we would characterize as experimental.”

Yeah. Whatever…

Job applicants with a history of drug use will no longer be disqualified from employment throughout the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to a report in the Washington Post.

Under the new guidelines, applicants for positions such as analysts, programmers or special agents must swear that they have not used marijuana for three years and 10 years for other drugs.

Old rules nixed employment for any who had used marijuana more than 15 times in their lives — or who had dabbled with other illegal narcotics more than five times.

The Home Secretary need not apply
