"Best Pot Plants": Oregon State Fair to display winner of first ever Marijuana Fair.

SALEM, Ore. People flocked to Oregon's first-ever marijuana growers' fair on Saturday, where a competition for best pot plants will be held with the winning entries to be displayed at the Oregon State Fair.

The inaugural two-day event being held in an exhibition hall on the Oregon State Fairgrounds underscores how the once-illicit marijuana industry is starting to go mainstream in Oregon, one of four states to have legalized recreational marijuana use, along with Washington, D.C.


Donald Morse, a pot grower who conceived the Oregon Cannabis Growers' Fair, said attendance was strong, less than two hours after the doors opened Saturday morning. Segments of the industry, from seed providers all the way to a company offering mechanized bud trimmers, were among more than 80 exhibitors at the fair that ends Sunday.

Reggae music thumped from Savant Plant Technologies' display on Friday as owner James Knox, 38, of Corvallis, set up his do-it-yourself grow package, including peat and microorganisms to stimulate plant growth.

2. I love the movie "Saving Grace"

Where a formerly-rich widow who was left nothing to maintain her home uses her expert orchid-rearing skills to cultivate incredible marijuana as a last-ditch effort to pay off and keep her property.

3. I love living in Oregon.

It's super hot today but I am relaxing in the kiddie pool with my dog, my kindle, my ice tea and a beautiful fat joint filled with the best Oregon weed.
