I think DOD did. Anyway, like I said, I don’t think it’s actually very different from practice, but saying it out loud is different from individual agencies/evaluators exercising discretion.

Thought this was sort of interesting:

OPM Memo States Marijuana Is Not a Disqualifier for Federal Employment

I doubt it's a major difference from previous policies, it's not exactly a ringing endorsement and apparently you still can't smoke while working for the feds, but it was sort of interesting (in a good way) to see it actually get written down.
