SALEM, Ore. (AP) – People flocked to Oregon’s first-ever marijuana growers’ fair on Saturday where a competition for best pot plants was being held, with the winners to be displayed at the Oregon State Fair.

The inaugural two-day Oregon Cannabis Growers’ Fair 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.

Ed Rosenthal, known in pot circles as the Guru of Ganja, poked, prodded, rubbed and sniffed several dozen marijuana plants – some of which were so big they engulfed him in an exhibition hall on the Oregon State Fairgrounds. He and other judges were picking nine winning plants – three in each of three categories – that will be displayed at the Oregon State Fair for two weeks starting later this month.

This was a well attended event by tribal members, tribal/state/federal dignitaries, as well as the local media. It was a very positive environment to kickoff the development and construction phase of the project.

It was exciting to see and hear all the momentum gained by the cooperating tribal, state, and federal agencies to see the project to this point. This is one of many steps to fulfill the wants of the tribal membership to best meet the economic needs of our community.
