All Woke Up: Colorado school takes higher education to new level

Empower Wisconsin | Feb. 24,  2020 

Colorado State University-Pueblo has high hopes for its new degree in weed.

The institution of higher education earlier this month received approval for the degree program, set to launch in the fall semester. 

As the Denver Post reported, “the Cannabis, Biology and Chemistry” course will be open to undergraduates looking to learn all about the emerging marijuana industry. It comes with a lab licensed by the state to grow industrial hemp. 

“It’s a rigorous degree geared toward the increasing demand coming about because of the cannabis industry,” David Lehmpuhl, College of Science and Mathematics dean, told The Denver Post.

Northern Michigan University in Marquette offers a four-year medicinal plant chemistry degree — cannabis included. 

Colorado was one of the first states to legalize recreational pot. 

As Newsweek reported, Colorado took in $1 billion in revenue from the marijuana trade last year — because the state taxes the THC out of it. 

“Hemp and marijuana has really come to the forefront in a lot of economic sectors in the country. We’re not pro-cannabis or anti-cannabis. What we’re about will be the science, and training students to look at that science,” Lehmpuhl said.  

No word on whether weed majors can minor in the munchies.
