WEED SCHOOL – Lake Superior State University is offering two degrees in cannabis studies– a business degree and a chemistry degree — designed to fill jobs now required by the legalization of pot. Northern Michigan offers a medicinal cannabis degree. Other universities and farm groups are not interested.

LIBRARY OVERDOSES – Librarians could be authorized to provide life-saving drugs to people who overdose on opioids under recent legislation that quickly was approved by the House. Library officials say that overdoses aren’t any more common in libraries than other public places, but that they are safe havens for people on the margins of society. And they may help better deliver care in rural areas. We talk to librarians in Cheboygan and St. Ignace. By Maxwell Evans FOR CHEBOYGAN, ST. IGNACE AND ALL POINTS
INVASIVE CRAYFISH – A new study predicts where the red swamp crayfish could next pop up on the Great Lakes.

IGNACE, CHEBOYGAN, SAULT STE. MARIE, ALCONA, HOLLAND, MANISTEE, OCEANA, HARBOR SPRINGS, LEELANAU, BENZIE AND ALL POINTS.

CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACTS – Crop-killing temperature swings, invasive species, harsh rains and water with poorly mixed nutrients are among the global warming threats to Michigan, scientists say.
