The packaging lawsuit Hershey filed against Colorado-based marijuana edibles company TinctureBelle last June has come to a close in the form of a settlement. The reason for the initial complaint: TinctureBelle’s edible marijuana products were packaged in a way that too closely resembled Hershey’s brand and may confuse consumers, especially children. The products in question were named Ganja Joy, Hasheath, Hashees, and Dabby Patty.
TinctureBelle initially argued that it stopped making the Hershey-resembling candies before the lawsuit was filed and that purchase of its products require an approved medical card and thus were not available to children. Now, they have agreed to recall all edibles with packaging or names resembling Hershey’s.
