Trademark News & Screw-ups Hit cannabis brand Gorilla Glue slapped with trademark lawsuit

When I was a little boy and would say the Russian version of the word "asshole", my grandmother, who adamantly disliked the use of bad words, would say, "There's no such word!" My response to that was, "What do you mean? We've all got one but you say there's no word for it?" We're witnessing a similar hypocrisy with multi-million dollar cannabis industry openly existing in the U.S. with dope brands popping up daily. And yet, you can't trademark your cannabis brand on the Federal level, because marijuana is not legalized federally in the U.S. This leads to unnecessarily difficulties that brand owners need to go through—without benefiting anyone. The public is not an iota safer because growers can't protect their brand in every state. Maybe it's finally time to realize that your ability to sell a product in each and every state and your ability to secure your assets are not one and the same thing.
