The opioid epidemic is hitting close to home, with hundreds of residents in Connecticut, dying each year from overdoses. On Wednesday's Brad & Dan Show, a special investigation as to what is being done to curb the problem in the state and nationally.

Among the guests will be Ken Welsh, president of the Coalition for a Better Wallingford. The coalition has launched a grassroots effort to repeal the Marino bill. The bill, featured on a recent "60 Minutes" telecast, stripped the Drug Enforcement Administration of its most potent weapon to keep prescription narcotics from going straight from major drug companies to the nation's streets.

Plus you will meet Joe Rannazzisi, the actual whistleblower from the 60 Minutes/Washington Post piece. He once worked as a Deputy Assistant for the DEA.

Also, the latest on traffic, weather, news and sports.

Brad & Dan start your Wednesday morning at 6:00.
