Behind the Headlines: Medicaid delays, medical marijuana’s benefits and SLC mayoral debate (7/17/15)


Lawmakers continue to haggle over expanding Medicaid, but the delay is having life and death consequences for some Utahns. An experiment with hemp extracts is having promising results at the University of Utah, renewing the debate over medical marijuana. And primary candidates for Salt Lake City mayor debate homelessness, open space and public safety.

On Friday at 9 a.m., Tribune reporters Robert Gehrke, Kristen Moulton and Chris Smart along with editorial writer George Pyle join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about the week’s top news stories.
