White House Taps Big Pharma-Loving, Pot-Hating Drug Czar
The White House is expected to name Rep. Tom Marino, from Pennsylvania to be the new Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP)—AKA the latest drug czar.

Per data published by the International Business Times, Marino has received more money from the pharmaceutical industry than any other sector, which happily continues to produce and distribute the most deadly and addictive legal drugs in the country.

Monday marks one year since Gov. Tom Wolf signed Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program into law and a state-wide fully operational medical marijuana program may be yet another year away.
