The Oregon State Fair is now officially underway, and for the first time in its history it features a cannabis exhibit with plants displayed for the public to view. It’s actually the first time live cannabis plants have ever been displayed at a state fair in the United States.

The exhibit was done as a 4H style competition, with blue, purple and yellow ribbons given to the winning plants; plants were judged before the event by a panel of professional growers including Ed Rosenthal.

The plants are displayed under a tent that is accessible by anyone with an ID showing that they’re at least 21 years old.
