Posted on 08/03/2014 7:09:41 PM PDT by Citizen Zed
Marijuana joined roses and dahlias Friday in blue ribbon events at the nations first county fair to allow pot competitions.
This weekends Denver County Fair includes a 21-and-over Pot Pavilion where winning entries for plants, bongs, edible treats and clothes made from hemp are on display.
Organizers say the marijuana categories this year which come with the debut of legal recreational marijuana in Colorado add a fun twist on Denvers already-quirky county fair, which includes a drag queen pageant and a contest for dioramas made with Peeps candies.
Weve been selling tickets to people from all over the world, and we keep hearing they want to come see the pot, said Dana Cain, who helped organize Denver Countys first fair three years ago. This years event is expected to draw 20,000 people.
Judges considered only the quality of individual marijuana plants, not potency or the merits of drugs produced by the plants.

Was Ron Paul a contestant?
Sounds like it has become a religion to a lot of these folks.
Breaded deep-fried buds in 5...4...3...
I hope the LORD flushes Colorado before it starts to stink.
Born and raised there; I’m really glad I emigrated out a few decades ago.
Pot Seen as Reason for Rise in Denver Homeless
A Mile High Bong-a-Thon!!
“which includes a drag queen pageant”
I think I’d rather hang out at the pot show. o_O
Drag Queens are frigging hilarious!
This legalized pot experiment is bound to end badly. We’ll find out that, yes there are a majority that can use it responsibly but we’re in for it from the large minority without self discipline. Yeah, that’s just like booze but it’ll add on to both the illegal drug and the alcohol medical and crime problems. You knew in the mines that when someone consistently smelled of weed, he would either stop coming to work, have an industrial accident (real or more often fake), or get fired as unsuitable on probation. The he was societies’ problem.
How does that work since efficacy is part of the "grade" among clientele?
Do you buzz test on different days? Does the fourth contestant rate higher?
Like Disney's plausible deniability regarding Gay Days?
Darned it 2ndDV -Lol, I saw the title and came here to post what you did. Read the article the other day.
This ain’t the country I was born in.
It sure isn’t. I and some of my family are not far from the border in Texas and the illegals and Ebola are scaring me!!
And Obama lies with every word he speaks.....God help us.
and people dragged their kids to stuff like this
I have no problem with smoking pot as long as the smokers are responsible adults who don’t toke with their kids or allow them to toke.
But I agree with you. This is no place for children.
Don’t these morons have anything better to do?
Peeps are so disgustingly sweet. Ugh.
