Discussion points:

1) What do you think of Canada’s move to become one of the few nations to legalize marijuana?

2) How do you think Canadian governments should disclose the revenues and expenses associated with this new program in their financial statements?

3) The article notes there are supply chain problems in the marijuana category? Find the definition of “supply chain” in Wiley’s Managerial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision-Making.
