Federal government will let provinces keep 75 per cent of marijuana tax revenues

Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party originally stated that tax from the sales of marijuana would be a 50-50 split between the federal government and the provinces and territories when the drug is legalized.

However, the Liberals have recently relented, agreeing to let the provinces and territories take a bigger piece of the tax pie. 

The agreement is set to be in place for two years after legalization.
