Seven of the candidates – Senator Christopher Dodd, Senator Barack Obama, Senator John Edwards, Senator Joseph R. Biden, Jr., Senator Mike Gravel, Mike Huckabee and New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson – responded and answered the following questions:

1. If you become President, how will you bolster efforts to reduce alcohol and drug abuse in communities throughout America?

2. A recent national survey found a significant decline in the number of parents talking to children about the risks of drugs and alcohol. If you become President, how will you encourage parents to engage with their kids on this health issue?
