On September 1, 2017, The White House announced that President Donald Trump nominated Marino as the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy.[2] He withdrew on October 17, 2017 following reports that he championed a bill that protected opioid manufacturers and prevented DEA agents from being able to battle the Opioid Epidemic.[3]
