Tom Marino was appointed by Donald Trump to be the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy. That job, which was colloquially referred to as “Drug Czar” would have put him in charge of the US opioid crisis.
However, recent reports showed that he had been involved in some extremely shady stuff, helping make the opioid crisis worse by promoting laws that kept drug companies from getting in trouble for their role in it.
Marino has dropped out of the running for Drug Czar… but don’t worry, because he has plenty of money. So what is Tom Marino net worth?
Tom Marino was a private practice attorney for several years before becoming a local DA in Pennsylvania. He abruptly resigned from that position in 2007, and nobody ever found out why.
A few years later he ran for the House of Representatives. He was highly funded by pharmaceutical companies, and in return, he pushed laws to “weaken aggressive DEA enforcement efforts against drug distribution companies that were supplying corrupt doctors and pharmacists who peddled narcotics to the black market”, as noted by the Washington Post.
According to Tom Marino’s financial disclosure, his family owned a commercial real estate company called MDM Properties, as well as a business that makes “gourmet ice cream topping.”
They also had two rental properties, worth up to $750,000 in total, and up to $300,000 in cash or investments.
In addition to his two rental properties, Tom Marino has several investments across industries, and multiple retirement accounts from outside of government.
Marino has several debts as well, including a student loan which is still between $50,000 and $100,000.
In total, we estimate Tom Marino net worth at slightly less than $1 million.
