Rise In Cyber Crime Challenges FBI

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. The rise of cyber crime is posing a new challenge for the FBI. To fight sophisticated cyber criminals, it's hiring hundreds of hackers. But the FBI has a rule against hiring anyone who's smoked marijuana recently. Director James Comey outlined his dilemma at a convention on crime.
