University spending $1M on equipment for cannabis center
SAULT STE. MARIE — Lake Superior State University in the Upper Peninsula has agreed to spend $1 million on chemistry equipment, partly to stock the school's new cannabis chemistry program.
The equipment will be housed in the Center for Cannabis Science, although students in other chemistry fields will also use it.
Vice President Morrie Walworth said Agilent Technologies came up with a "phenomenal proposal" for the school.
The Evening News in Sault Ste. Marie reports Lake Superior State's governing board is in favor of seeking a loan for the purchases.
Walworth said an anticipated increase in enrollment should turn the equipment into a good investment.
Michigan allows marijuana for medicinal and recreational use.
