Description:  In many locations in Canada last Wednesday lines formed outside retail establishments as customers queued up to purchase marijuana on the first day of legal sales.

Discussion points:

1) What do you think of Elina’s big sales day? Why do some people seem to see entrepreneurial opportunities where others don’t?

2) Was marijuana available Wednesday in your university town? What were the lines like?

3) How will Canadian governments account for this new marijuana revenue stream? Hint: Check out Module 3 in Wiley’s  Advanced Accounting..
