Kidding!

In a Wall Street Journal interview, FBI director James Comey noted that many top computer geeks and hackers enjoy marijuana. "I have to hire a great force to compete with those cyber criminals and some of those kids want to smoke weed on the way to the interview," Comey quipped. But Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) didn't get the joke, forcing Comey to explain at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that he'd simply "waxed philosophic and funny" but is "dead set against" marijuana usage.
