UPDATE: Hershey’s Settles Lawsuit Against Marijuana Company

I previously wrote about Hershey’s trademark lawsuit against pot-infused candy makers in Colorado.  The parties have now settled the lawsuit (the outcome of which was never really in doubt).  The Denver Post reports as follows:

In a settlement penned in late September, TinctureBelle agreed to recall and destroy all edibles it sold that looked like the famed chocolate company’s products, or with names that played on their brands.

Although the edibles company said it had stopped making products that appeared like those produced by Hershey — including well-known names such as Reese’s, Almond Joy and Heath — long before the federal lawsuit was filed in June in U.S. District Court in Denver, the settlement makes sure it won’t happen again.
