Secret Service- Losing Too Many Applicants by Banning Habitual Weed Users

Former cannabis users won’t have as tough of a time applying for the Secret Service. CNN reported that the agency tasked with protecting the president’s life is hoping to grow their ranks by loosening their marijuana policy. In the past, the Secret Service had a cap on the number of times a person could consume cannabis before they were considered unfit for duty. Now, they will take into consideration how long a person has gone since the last time they touched a joint, vape, edible, etc. The new policy will no longer disqualify job applicants as readily as the previous rules.

Hypothetically speaking, a person who gave up pot 4 years ago could still be considered for the job even if they were a chronic user back in the day. Unfortunately, the agency did not provide specifics abut the new cannabis policy. Despite this, the public does know why this move was made. The sudden change to the drug policy shows that there is an acknowledgment of the fact that marijuana is now more prevalent in society. It also shows an acceptance of the fact that a majority of those who apply are from the younger generation. The chances that the younger generation applicants have experimented with marijuana are higher and this change is an effort to make the hiring process more accessible to them.

From a former client with a First Degree Distribution Charge

"In my distraction focusing on my . . . trial, I failed to ask you how things went with . . . I watched and learned from you throughout that case and greatly admire the consummsate attorney that I hoped to emulate. I witnessed how very hard you worked and how you left no stone unturned. I hope the case worked out for you and your clients. If it did not (and I hope it did) it was not for lack of the effect on your part which was humbling."


From an adversary in a case where we ultimately returned a verdict of $2,069,000

"My family and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work on my case. I feel like I can live my life normally again and it feels awesome. You are truly a professional and wonderful attorney."


From a former client charged with a serious weapons offense

"At the time, I was mortified because, having only worked against you in the Prosecutor’s Office, I couldn’t picture being on the same side. Frank, I want to thank you for the pleasure of having worked with you over the past years. I have learned a great deal from you. Most importantly, I learned that cases were not always as black and white as I thought they were when I worked for the Prosecutor’s Office. You are a wonderful attorney who not only works hard, but also cares deeply about his clients. Frank, I think you are the best."
