MARQUETTE — A university in Michigan is offering an unusual degree — in marijuana.

Northern Michigan University in Marquette began its medical plant chemistry program this semester. The program combines chemistry, biology, botany, horticulture, marketing and finance.

Other universities offer marijuana policy and law classes. But Northern Michigan’s program is unique because it offers a four-year degree studying the science and business behind growing marijuana.

“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 in the program. “But it’s not an easy degree at all.”

Maybe I can use this to convince my dope head middle school students to stay in school and work towards college. Hopefully they mature past the dope head phase by graduation instead of just dropping out.

Perhaps NMU forgot to mention yet another part of their study program, that being ...

Student participation in *clinical* tests of using the substance and it's findings! :biggrin-new:

We have medical marijuana in MI, so it's a legitimate crop. There's not a whole hell of a lot else to do in Marquette when winter comes, unless you have a snowmobile.

I'm just kind of surprised it's not MSU with the program-not just because they are the biggest party school in the Midwest, but because they are our agricultural school.
