Behind the Headlines

Medical cannabis, high drug costs and local response to the Pittsburgh shooting

Play

Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes holds a public meeting to discuss the medical cannabis compromise legislation he crafted with proponents and opponents of Proposition 2. Also, due to high drug costs, a Utah health insurance group is paying for public employees to fill prescriptions in Mexico. And the local faith community responds to the recent shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Erin Alberty and Benjamin Wood as well as columnist Robert Gehrke join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories. Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines”at kcpw.org, or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
