Northern Michigan University in Marquette is offering a cannabis degree. The four-year medicinal plant chemistry degree geared toward the emerging cannabis industry includes classes such as organic chemistry, biochemistry, soils, bio-statistics, genetics, biology, gas and liquid chromatography, accounting, financial management and perspectives on society. 

Other colleges and universities in the U.S., namely Harvard, Ohio State University, Vanderbilt University and University of Denver, offer a variety of classes on cannabis policy and law. 

The NMU program mixes chemistry, biology, botany, horticulture, marketing and finance in a four-year program that began this semester. University officials say the program fills a need because 29 states have legalized medical cannabis, including eight states where cannabis is also legal for social use. 

“We’re gaining students every week,” Dr. Mark Paulsen, director of the university’s chemistry department, said. “With a full 12 months of recruitment, we expect that to grow.”
