Installing double sink vanity

I'm also installing a double sink vanity where there was only a single. My question is about the drain. The vanity has drawers in the middle with two openings on the back for plumbing. I have the wall open going to the stack/vent. Can I run that single drain line to both sinks without a separate vent. I was planning on installing a trap under each sink but I saw an article that said there might be a siphoning effect for the downstream trap. Not sure if that's true or not. I really don't want to disabe that center drawer or tear open more wall to tie in another vent since it is cast iron. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could create a siphon effect, although most people don't put that much water down a bathroom sink.  Replace the existing fitting with a double Wye or add an air admittance valve.  The later would probably be easier.
