Oregon State Fair to Feature Marijuana

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A new crop will be featured at the Oregon State Fair this year: marijuana.

The Oregonian/Oregon Live reports that the fair awards prizes for the curviest vegetable or the most misshapen fruit. This year, marijuana plants will also be on display — and will be judged by a panel of growers before the fair.

The Oregon Cannabis Business Council is sponsoring the exhibit. Chairman Don Morse says nine plants will be displayed in a greenhouse and monitored by a security guard.

Only people age 21 and older will be allowed inside.

Fair spokesman Dan Cox says the exhibit is a nod to the newly legal status of cannabis. Morse says, however, that those hoping for a sample will be disappointed.

The fair runs Aug. 26 through Sept. 5
