Faced with a largely resounding silence on drug and addiction matters from both candidates during the presidential campaign, The Fix recently published its best estimate of what Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are likely to do, if elected, about a range of important issues in our sphere. The questions we hypothetically posed to the pair covered the disease model of addiction, the addiction epidemic among soliders and veterans, drug-related incarceration and the War on Drugs, and—of course—marijuana legalization. If, improbably, you're still hesitating over which way to vote—or if drug and addiction policies are important to you—check out our guide to the candidates here.
