Plans for a Woodstock 50th anniversary contest went pfft, and now Green Market Report has the story on why there’s not (yet?) any Woodstock-branded weed.

  • A judge ruled a company called Woodstock Ventures, which has been developing Woodstock branded cannabis in partnership with MedMen is the only company with the rights to the name.
  • Jared Mirsky, of cannabis branding agency Wick & Mortar says the case illustrates the value of picking an original name for your brand. “There seems to be a big misunderstanding in terms of what you can and can’t do in terms of naming,” he said.
  • Canna Law Blog parent firm Harris Bricken is having a webinar on alternative dispute resolution for cannabis companies who want to stay out of court.
