Municipalities Pot Revenue

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              Union of B-C Municipalities says it’s still trying to reach a deal with the province on sharing legal marijuana tax revenues with local governments. The group’s president Wendy Booth says work is continuing in order to get the province to put a dollar figure on legal marijuana costs to municipalities. She says there is no urgency to reach a tax sharing deal by the time pot becomes legal, adding there are many policy questions that must be answered. Ottawa reached a deal with the provinces in December to give them 75 per cent of marijuana tax revenues.
