Behind the Headlines

Mormon church opposes Utah’s medical marijuana ballot initiative, but not its use under specific circumstances


The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints opposes Utah’s medical marijuana ballot initiative, but not the use of the drug under all circumstances. Sen. Orrin Hatch and Rep. Chris Stewart respond to news about former Donald Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. And, though legal, private meetings held by subcommittees of the Inland Port Authority draw more criticism from the public over a lack of transparency.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporter Taylor W. Anderson, Washington bureau chief Thomas Burr and Editor Jennifer Napier-Pearce join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories. Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines” at, or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
