Michigan University Is Offering A Course In Marijuana And No, We Are Not High

This is one degree every stoner would be proud to flaunt. Northern Michigan University is now offering a 4-year degree course in marijuana. We are not kidding, we are not high. It’s a study in the medicinal value of the plant, its cultivation, commercialization and marketing.

“When they hear what my major is, there are a lot of people who say, ‘Wow, cool dude. You’re going to get a degree growing marijuana,'” said Alex Roth, a sophomore enrolled in the program.

Unlike what you are thinking, the course is not about only marijuana. The students of the course would not be growing marijuana (sorry to douse your stoner hopes) or studying it in particular, rather they’d be focusing on plants whose effects are similar to that of marijuana.

If you think the course is going to be as breezy as a marijuana high, you are wrong. It is a rather technical study in the biology and chemistry. Brandon Canfield, associate chemistry professor at the university, said while talking to Detroit Free Press, “This is not an easy program. It’s a really intense, biology chemistry program.”

This is a first of its kind programme that combines all sciences and commercial aspects of marijuana. While there are other universities that offer courses in law and policy pertaining to marijuana, the Michigan University course focuses on the science of the plant too.

Well, what can we say, this course is gonna give you one hell of a high.
