Universities Offer Marijuana Masters

Putting the "high" in higher education.

Recently, The University of Maryland School Pharmacy announced a new Master of Science in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics this fall. According to a university press release that degree is designed to teach students how to "support patients and the medical cannabis industry, add to existing research, and develop well-informed medical cannabis policy."

Northern Michigan University now offers a four year degree program in medicinal plants chemistry.
