This is all in the name of medicine again, right. What a joke. Outside of the few reasons a person might claim that pot is needed as medicine the rest of the users are using this as their opportunity to project pot use as an acceptable day-to-day practice. For the majority of us that have never used pot, or would have no idea where in the heck to find someone that would sell it to us, this is simply one more thing that we have to protect our kids from because we choose to live a values-based life without giving in to every temptation that pops in front of our faces. I'd prefer to use my tax money to build more prisons if it meant keeping pot from becoming legal. But, my opinion…. I'm sure others have theirs...

Had to make an account just to comment on what an unbelievably misleading headline this is. You quite literally ought to be ashamed of yourself for flat out lying to your readers.

Do you have a link for applications for being a judge?

So they're not letting anyone under the age of 21 see the marijuana-related contest entries...despite the evidence that the quickest way to get kids interested in something is to tell them they're not allowed to see it. Seems a little counter-productive.

It's not a State Fair if it's not "deep fried"

The tone of the article seems slightly misleading as others have mentioned. It's about the tune of saying "Gas Stations Selling Cigarettes Feet Away From Candy". The subtitle goes on to flair out intellectual stipends by asking 'Pot at the County Fair? Why not?', such rhetorical questions can, if delivered well, persuade an audience to believe in the position of the writer. I would encourage the readers to examine the facts carefully and decide exactly what they find issues with in the event. It seems like they are just judging PICTURES of weed and rolling OREGANO JOINTS for fun. This whole thing could have been x-posted to FOX news!

When January 1st came around, I looked at the Denver Post website to see what local news reported about the first day of cannabis sales: long lines, inventory running short, a jolly atmosphere and all that. Four weeks later, I linked to the Denver Post again and there was almost nothing about cannabis: the Broncos and the Super Bowl are the big news, and the only marijuana story is about regulations allowing cannabis stores to bank normally. No streets full of stumbling stoners, no reefer madness. It's just no big deal. Why try to sensationalize it with daffy headlines?

Title of article: Marijuana to be featured alongside cotton candy, Ferris wheels at county fair in Colorado------------From the Article: 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.................................... Clearly a misleading headline intended to spark controversy. Shame on you KRISTEN WYATT
