WCAI News Director Steve Junker hosts a roundup of some of the top local and regional news of the week. His guests include Gwenn Friss of the Cape Cod Times; Sara Brown of the Vineyard Gazette; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Andy Tomolonis of South Coast Today; Ann Wood of the Provincetown Banner; and George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times.

Among the stories we talk about: a new study shows the trades on Cape Cod have been hit hard by the opiod epidemic; foster care is seeing an impact from the opiod epidemic; towns are revisiting the question of recreational marijuana in town meetings; the Cape's first medical marijuana dispensary is slated to open in December; the state will put up more money for the proposed new Cape Cod Regional Technical High School; a condo developer in Provincetown threatens to raise the roof; details emerge on violations at Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station; two Cape museums plan to merge; expert testimony at big trials comes at a cost to the county; Cape Cod Canal watchers follow the big ships.
