MSU is Mississippi State University.
The University of Mississippi, where they grow the weed, is UM.
UM = Ole Miss.
MSU has nothing to do with the marijuana at Ole Miss.
In fact MSU and Ole Miss are bitter rivals.
Where did you do your graduate studies and where did you publish your work? I'd be interested in reading it. I have full access to academic journals in every discipline.

It is categorically false in every sense to assert that this could be the origin. ALL cannabis grown by MSU was terribly inferior with 2% levels of Thc. Any cutting from the govt program would have been crap, just as it is today. Researchers that get permission to study cannabis complain about the quality of their samples.
What is the real story? Where did it first appear and wonder what the genetics are?
