Hershey's has filed two trademark infringement complaints over marijuana edibles the candy company says look like their products. The Pennsylvania-based chocolate maker is suing Tincturebelle, a pot-infused candy manufacturer in Colorado, and Conscious Care Cooperative, a medical marijuana dispensary in Washington state. The lawsuits claim the pot-infused candy violates Hershey's trademarks, dilutes its brand and is "unfair competition" to the company. WBIR reported this USA Today story.
