Denver County Fair Removes Cannabis Exhibits

The Denver County Fair — a wild celebration of the “creativity and personality of Denver” — will not feature any marijuana-related exhibits this year, the Associate Press reports.

Last year, the fair’s cannabis-focused ‘Pot Pavilion’ came under heavy scrutiny. While there was no actual cannabis on display last year, more than a dozen attendees filed lawsuits against a Denver dispensary for reportedly handing out cannabis-infused chocolates to the crowd.

According to the event organizer, however, that incident is not the reason for opting out this year. Rather, marijuana-related vendors reported poor sales last year. According to one Denver citizen, the drug has “become kind of old hat” under the new, legalized industry.
