Turns out, you can make $70k right out of college with a degree in cannabis

Nowadays you can get a degree in anything. Northern Michigan University has started offering a degree that may be of interest to cannabis connoisseurs: medicinal plant chemistry. And apparently it pays the bills!

"All of our graduates are going to be qualified to be analysts in a lab setting," Brandon Canfield, the associate professor of analytical chemistry who started the program, told CNBC Make It.

"That could lead to a position that pays $70,000 right out of school," he added. However, students do actually have to graduate.

It's not an easy degree; it focuses on more than just horticulture and plant growth. It is a combination of biology, chemistry, marketing, and financial planning.

There are many other schools, universities, and colleges that offer classes or certifications in marijuana law or policy, the program from Northern Michigan is the first four-year degree dedicated to the science and business behind cannabis.

Canfield's inspiration for the curriculum was his attendance at the American Chemical Society's annual meeting in 2017, where he learned about the dire need for analytical chemists.

Consequently, the Northern Michigan University chemistry department quickly moved to launch the new program as soon as possible.

"We've had an overwhelming response from growing operations, dispensaries and other businesses who want to take on our students as interns," Canfield said.

These are the 5 signs of a fake friend

The world is comprised of a variety of people. Knowing how to spot these people is important. Unfortunately, many of us already know that some of these people aren't as genuine as others.

It can be hard when you find out that a friend, colleague, or even a family member is fake, especially when it comes to how they interact with you.

Luckily, there are signs that fake people inevitably display throughout their lives that can help you discern who around you is genuine, and who isn't.

Take a look at these five signs to figure out who in your life is being fake.

1. They Try Hard to Be Liked

Fake people try incredibly hard to be liked by the people around them because they're already aware of how fake they truly are.

This is one of the most obvious signs a fake person will display because they'll be working harder than most when it comes to interacting with others, or simply out in public.

You can always tell who your genuine friends are because they'll simply be themselves when around other people.

2. They Crave Attention

Fake people can be spotted because they have to be the center of attention. Not only do they work hard in order to be liked, but they also have to be in the spotlight more than necessary.

If you have someone in your life who can't let others take the spotlight, it may be a good indication that they aren't very genuine.

3. They're Total Show Offs

We already know that fake people crave attention, but because of that, they also show off way more than they should.

Everyone can be a show off at times, but someone who shows off no matter what they're doing is probably fake.

Don't get confused if you have a friend who is naturally good at a number of things; people who are fake tend to advertise, but genuine people won't.

Being good at something doesn't make you a show off.

4. They Gossip All the Time

Gossiping is natural, and we've all let ourselves vent about someone else from time to time. However, fake people will gossip about a lot of people, all the time.

Fake people want to draw negative attention away from themselves because they can't have anyone knowing who they really are.

If you know someone who gossips more than most, say something to stop them and see how they react.

5. They Only Criticize

Another indication you're dealing with a fake person is that they're overly critical.

Fake people can't easily express praise or admiration for other people because they need to look great. If they praise someone else, then that's praise they don't have for themselves.
