California Gov. Jerry Brown last week signed a bill that details how to carry out the November 2016 ballot measure that legalizes recreational marijuana as of January 2018. Tucked deep in the text is an option for county fairs to allow sampling and sales for people 21 and older in designated spots.
The media has had fun with the image of marijuana users getting the munchies and exploring the enticing array of fair food. The Fresno Bee last week imagined “a dramatic increase in funnel cake sales at county fairs across the state.”
