The Hershey Co. has sued a Colorado marijuana edibles company, claiming it makes four pot-infused candies that too closely resemble iconic products of the chocolate maker.
The trademark infringement lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Denver this week against TinctureBelle LLC and TinctureBelle Marijuanka LLC.
It alleges TinctureBelle's Ganja Joy, Hasheath, Hashees and Dabby Patty mimic Hershey's Almond Joy, Heath bar, Reese's peanut butter cups and York peppermint patty candies, respectively.

No it isn’t. e.g. it has a flag, if he were banned it would not have anything.
Dude, he asked a legitimate question. You must have gotten some bad stuff. Chill.
This isn’t farfetched....what about pets? There are dogs who are known to claim candy bars if they’re in reach.
Hey..! It looks to me that this stuff was designed to be sold to KIDS..!!!
I mean...COME ON...CANDY BARS....COOKIES..!!!
This CANNOT be allowed to stand..!!
You would never notice. The dog would just take a nap. The chocolate might get him though.
Good for Hershey!
Just think what would happen if someone left one laying around and Maureen Dowd got hold of it.
If this company makes pot-based cookies called Hashtagalongs, can Twitter & the Girl Scouts also sue them for name infringement ??
Oh no...pot does NOTHING to your brain. It has NO effect at all on your body- that’s why everyone who likes it wants it in EVERYTHING. What happened to ‘medicinal’?? Isn’t THC in pill form good enough? Now taking SMOKE into your lungs isn’t effective enough, they have to EAT it too? If there is NO effect why find any and every way to ingest it?
This disgusts me. We each have ONE brain- one- that controls our entire body. Why do anything to alter it for entertainment purposes? Why ADD to the impaired by chemicals/alcohol problem? So pot candy and cookies and muffins will be ok to sell now? And kids will NEVER try the candy, right? Hershey should sue like crazy. The way it’s going POT will be protected in all forms, and the evil CANDY will be regulated as ‘bad for you’.
Don’t get between a stoner and his dream of unlimited dope.The stuff is harmless and has no lasting effects but, Damn they get mean when they can’t have it 24-7.
And you make yourself your brothers keeper when you choose for him. How dare you to legalize and trivialize away someone else's FREEDOM!
Our nation was founded without prohibition, and ran just fine till Carrie and the highway paving crew came to town.
Our govt is ARMING BOTH SIDES in the war on drugs! And you want to give the jackboots MORE POWER? Do you?
Legalization ENDS prohibition! There is no other solution. Prohibition just creates monsters and ruins lives!
All drugs should carry appropriate consumer information - alcohol, tobacco, pot - which is another reason they should be legalized; black market products are unregulated and have no consumer information.
tag you’re it!!!
This is about recreational (legal) drug use, not medicinal...
The almond-joy clone can be called FudgePacker
Colorado has gone nuts. I cannot believe that this crap is happening in this country.
drug legalization just shows that people have become retarded in this country
license is not liberty
