The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints opposes Utah's medical marijuana ballot initiative, but not the use of the drug under specific circumstances. Sen. Orrin Hatch and Rep. Chris Stewart respond to news about former 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” online at kcpw.org or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
