North Michigan University is now jumping on the marijuana wave. They have decided to offer students the opportunity to major in marijuana studies. The program will be offered as a four-year Bachelor of Science program called “Medicinal Plant Chemistry,” which combines chemistry, biology, botany, horticulture, marketing and finance classes into one course.

“No one is growing marijuana. No one is violating and state or federal laws,” NMU Board of Trustees member Steve Mitchell tells the Free Press. “But there are a lot of plants that can be studied.”
The director of the university’s chemistry department says that the program is growing. “We’re gaining students every week,” Dr. Mark Paulsen said. “With a full 12 months of recruitment, we expect that to grow.”
