Three cities are asking the Union of British Columbia Municipalities to put pressure on the federal government to ensure that if a marijuana tax is created next year, cities will get a cut of the revenue. With marijuana dispensaries already operating in Nelson, B-C, Mayor Deb Kozak says the lack of federal regulation or tax means the city isn't benefiting from the industry.

(The UBCM will debate the proposal to lobby for a local stake in a prospective marijuana tax at the end of September.)
