Colorado State University’s Pueblo campus will offer a bachelor’s of science degree in cannabis, biology, and chemistry this fall, the Colorado Department of Higher Education announced last week.
“It’s a rigorous degree geared toward the increasing demand coming about because of the cannabis industry,” David Lehmpuhl, dean of CSU-Pueblo’s College of Science and Mathematics, told The Denver Post. “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.
