Marijuana Contests Join the County Fair In Colorado

Think you make a mean weed brownie? Maybe you can roll one hell of a joint? Well, this year you can bring your marijuana alongside grandmas famous cherry pie, and compete for a blue ribbon at the Denver County Fair

Just to be clear, there won’t actually be any marijuana at the fairgrounds. The judging will be done off-site, with photos showing the winning entries. And a live joint-rolling contest will be done with oregano, not pot.

The nine marijuana categories include live plants and clones, plus contests for marijuana-infused brownies and savory foods. Homemade bongs, homemade roach clips and clothing and fabric made with hemp round out the categories.

Top prize is $20, plus of course a blue ribbon.

But, weed isn’t the only nontraditional fair here. There’s a speed text-messaging contest, a bicycle rodeo, a drag queen pageant,a contest for dioramas made with Peeps candies, and a troupe of performing pigs.

This years fair is August 1-3 at the National Western complex… In other words, you’ve got plenty of time to start growing your prize plants!
