Denver County Fair To Include Marijuana Judging

DENVER (UPI) — Officials in Denver say they are adding marijuana-based contests to the 2014 county summer fair.

Colorado voters in November 2012 legalized the possession, use, production, distribution and personal cultivation of marijuana.

KMGH said there won’t be any actual marijuana at the fair — the judging will be done off-site with photos showing the winning entries. The entries will be shown in a “Pot Pavilion” open only to people 21 or older, the station said.

There also will be a joint-rolling contest using oregano.

County fair organizers told the station the marijuana categories will add a fun twist on Denver’s already eccentric county fair. The event already includes a drag queen pageant and tattoo competitions, KMGH said.

Judges looking at marijuana plants will look only at quality, not potency, the report said. Top prize is a blue ribbon and $20.

The Denver County Fair began in 2011.
