I’m sure that a lot of people’s time at university is spent getting completely high all day and playing video games, but what if you were actually enrolled in university to study marijuana?

This is now an actual possibility thanks to the University of Northern Michigan, who are now offering a four year degree in weed studies. The course will cover the science and business of the drug and pretty much everything you need in order to become a true expert in the subject.
Associate chemistry professor Brandon Canfield explains what the course is all about:
Obviously, the program is new and different and it might speak to a certain crowd. But for a student to succeed, they’re going to have to be very dedicated and motivated. This is not an easy program. It’s a really intense, biology chemistry program.
I came up with the idea when it was my off day and I saw there was a cannabis chemistry group that was putting on a whole series of talks.
I heard all about the need for analytical chemists and all sorts of interesting talks. That was the initial spark.
Sounds like it’s going to be a lot of hard work huh? Especially when you consider that the course are going to include accounting, chemistry, biology, biostatistics, biochemistry, botany, genetics, horticulture, marketing, organic chemistry, and finance.
Sounds even harder than a genuine degree to be honest and that’s before you even consider that marijuana isn’t legal in Michigan so you won’t be seeing any weed in reality during the course, just talking and studying it. Is that really worth it?
Probably not, although I still expect a bunch of people to sign up for the course. You gotta love intelligent stoners.
