     Leon Trotsky's granddaughter is the head of the National Institute on Drug Abuse -- the U. S. government's National Institute on Drug Abuse.

     Make of it what you will.

This administration certainly likes to appoint communists to various positions of authority, doesn't it?
[This is only a valid snark if Ms Trotsky is in fact a communist.}

It could be worse, what if it was William S. Burroughs in charge?

The Wikipedia article doesn't give much insight into Ms. Volkow. The Wiki article on NIDA is dense, in more ways than one. First page of Google News about NIDA has only stories about a missing teenager. Huhn, indeed.

I don't know her politics, but I know that she accepted a position where she is required by law to lie if the science doesn't turn out to match Congresses' preconceptions.
