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.
