DC State Fair Now has a Cannabis Growing Contest

This year’s state fair in D.C. will feature some of their newly legalized weed to pair with deep-fried candy bars and funnel cakes.

The D.C. State Fair recently announced the addition of a marijuana growing competition to this year’s lineup, reports the Washington Post.

The “Best Buds” category now joins a list of contests that include awards for best honey, homebrews, and pickled foods.

The competition forms point out that marijuana will be judged on four categories: appearance, odor, touch, and cultivation method.

“Now that it’s legal for residents of the District to grow their own plants, we wanted a way to highlight this new freedom while also showing off the agricultural talents of the District’s people,” Anna Tauzin, a board member and outreach director for the fair, wrote in an e-mail to The Post.
