FBI, NSA to hackers: Let us be blunt. Weed need your help. We'll hire you even if you've smoked a little pot in the past

Bureaucracy and creativity are not usual bedfellows.

People who are creative often experiment with drugs in their early years, and a good hacker needs some creativity (hence why they've had a hard time separating the two camps - a venn diagram would show a fairly large overlap I suspect).

This new direction just tells us how desperate they are for creative minds to pull in *their* direction. They are recruiting more potential Snowden's, however.
