A Michigan college is believed to be the first in the nation to offer up a marijuana-based undergraduate curriculum. If you’re ready for a joke about “Pot University” or class times at 4:20 p.m. you’re likely not the caliber of student cut out for the classes — as the professors linked to the program at Northern Michigan University explain: this is a tough course load. “At the undergraduate level there has been a void in this area,” said Brandon Canfield, explaining that until recently only graduate students were doing research on marijuana. “I expect in the next couple years we’ll see quite a few of these programs popping up.” The legal marijuana business has been booming for years. A report by the group, Cannabis Benchmarks, shows that Colorado racked up nearly $250 million in total marijuana sales during the first two months of this year.
