Northern Michigan University now offers ‘Medical Plant Chemistry’ — or Marijuana Major.

The University of North Michigan is hoping this new major will prepare students for careers in the burgeoning marijuana industry.  They hope students become a major pipeline for the legal marijuana business, which employs between 165,000 and 203,000 Americans today. “Students will take classes in chemistry, plant biology, and business entrepreneurship, and complete a capstone research project involving “experimental horticulture” and “instrumental analysis of natural products,” as stated in the NMU website.
