Remove Tom Marino as Nominee for Trump Admin Drug Czar

This petition had 177 supporters

According to the REAL News, 60 Minutes, Washington Post, New York Times, the Congressional Record and other independent sources, Marino sponsored a bill that gutted the ability of the DEA to punish or prosecute individuals at drug companies and drug distribution companies who were FLOODING the market with Opioids, even when they knew the devastating impact it was having on society, particularly our young people. In one case they sold 93,000,000 pills to a small pharmacy in a town of 392 people in West Virginia. Many of his staffers now work for the Pharmaceutical industry or trade organizations related to the Pharma Industry. The Marino Bill passed the House and Senate unanimously and was signed into law by President Obama!! Tragic to 1000's of families. NOW Marino has been nominated to the position of Drug Czar in the Trump Administration. Marino has always been for sale. This is no different than most of what he has done in his past only now there is a record. Most of his staff and the DEA legal staff now work in big Pharma. Flooding the Market is not the cure for this crisis. And certainly, making those most responsible for this pain in charge of Drug Policy is one of the most irresponsible moves made by this Administration.
