Rapper Drake failed to trademark Health Canada’s THC stop-sign warning logo in the US—for reasons not related to Health Canada’s claim on the image.

  • Rather, the acronym THC is already trademarked, by US cannabis-tech company Pineapple Express (no relation to Canadian delivery service of the same name).
  • The rejection was posted publicly, so we can read that even if THC hadn’t already been trademarked, the application would be rejected because cannabis is federally illegal, while the image may be confused with others and fails to distinguish the product.
