DENVER -- THC University, the brainchild of 24-year-oldentrepreneur Matt Jones, promises to teach people to grow marijuana fromhome.

"I know people are gonna laugh, but there's gonna be a lotof people who are gonna take it seriously, too," said Jones, who willoffer the courses out of a classroom he is renting at Auraria Campus inDenver.

"I think a lot of people just think you plant a seed, and let it go," he added.

Jones says it's more complicated, and he will bring in experts toteach day-long classes starting in February and again in March. He sayspeople won't have a way to purchase marijuana legally for nearly a yearand might want to learn how to grow the plant themselves.

"You don't know all the time, where it came from, what exactly you'regetting and where it came from. So this is a great way for you to beable to choose, I want my plants to be soil, I want it to be hydro, Iwant it to be organic," said Jones.

He will offer an "Associates," "Bachelors" and "Masters" degree - with the latter two providing 24-hour customer service.

"So long as there's no marijuana actually in the classroom, thenthere's no legal impediment at all to this scholarly pursuit," said9NEWS legal analyst Scott Robinson.

"You're probably going to be able to matriculate, without any convictions," he added.
