Why can’t the FBI get high?

Chicago’s FBI Office recently tweeted a reminder to those applying for a job with the venerable agency:

Illinois decriminalizes recreational marijuana on Jan. 1, but #DYK federal laws on marijuana aren’t changing? To apply to #FBI, you’ll still need to be marijuana-free for 3 yrs.

The waiting period for applicants appears to affect regular marijuana consumers along with people working in the marijuana industry and anyone taking Schedule 1 restricted drugs. Current FBI agents and staff face risky hurdles should they need to self-medicate with federally forbidden substances. And what’s with the 3 years? Why anabolic steroids for 10 years? Do J. Edgar Hoover’s specter and COINTEL schemes still haunt the hallowed halls of the Washington FBI building named after him?

Hoover refused to recruit long hairs, bearded men, “pot heads” and people he called “pear heads.” If by pear heads J. Edgar was referring to small-minded people and not just individuals with misshapen craniums, then why can’t the FBI be euphoric over mother nature’s herbal-based wonder drugs that lead to mind expansion and even improved mental health? Or will the US face a bleak future of pear heads in the FBI and other federal agencies?

    Just in: Jury nullification in the UK

    A multiple sclerosis patient who was facing jail for growing cannabis to ease her pain was acquitted today after the case against her collapsed.

    Lesley Gibson, 55, and her husband, Mark, received not guilty verdicts at Carlisle Crown Court after being charged for possession and cultivation of the class B drug.

      UK is about ten years behind western europe and US when it comes to drug reform… the Daily Mail etc cast a long shadow.

    The Moroccan government is seriously considering the legalization of cannabis production. Will the USA just stand by and allow an Arab nation to seise the worldwide market?

    Alcohol prohibition was, contrary to popular opinion, an extremely successful public health program by a number of different metrics. Reasonable societies can decide if they want the tradeoffs that come with legalization, but only if you are honest about the facts.


    Prohibition was working, it only needed a few more years!
