Hershey sues over marijuana candy in Colorado Published: June 9, 2014

The Hershey Co., the giant candy maker, this week filed a federal lawsuit against a Colorado company selling marijuana-infused chocolates with names too similar for comfort to its own products, reports the Denver Business Journal.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Denver against TinctureBelle LLC and an affiliated company, TinctureBelle Marijuanka LLC, which are in Pueblo West.

Hershey alleges trademark infringement and for dilution of its trademark. Specifically, Hershey claims TinctureBelle is selling knock-offs of its Reese's, Health, Almond Joy and York trademarks.
