Staff members at an agency that oversees offshore drilling have been using drugs and watching porn

In addition to using drugs and surfing porn, staff at the Minerals Management Service accepted sporting event tickets, lunches and other gifts from oil and gas companies. What could go wrong? Oh...
In at least one case, an inspector for the Minerals Management Service admitted using crystal methamphetamine and said he might have been under the influence of the drug the next day at work, according to the report by the acting inspector general of the Interior Department.

The report cites a variety of violations of federal regulations and ethics rules at the agency's Louisiana office. Previous inspector general investigations have focused on inappropriate behavior by the royalty-collection staff in the agency's Denver office.
