Northern Michigan University to Offer Marijuana Studies Degree


Northern Michigan University now offers a degree in “medicinal plant chemistry,” which may be the first degree program dedicated to the study of marijuana.

In a post on the university’s website, faculty behind the new degree program explain that the historical stigma surrounding marijuana is quickly vanishing, thus making it an appropriate time for students to begin to study the chemistry behind medicinal plants.

“The historical stigma associated with cannabis is quickly vanishing, and although there is a surge in businesses related to the marijuana economy, there is a major gap in educational opportunities available to prepare people for this field,” the university’s website reads.
