This month, psychologist A. Thomas McLellan was nominated to serve as Deputy Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy.   McLellan, who was finishing a four year term on the Board of Directors of the College on Problems of Drug Dependence, had recently been elected to serve as President-elect of the College.  Having received the Obama administration nomination, McLellan had to resign that post.  As this issue of SPIN goes to press, McLellan’s Senate confirmation hearing had not been scheduled, but APA’s endorsement of McLellan’s nomination is posted on the Senate Judiciary Committee’s website.
