As known to general public, Marijuana is legal in 28 states of USA. However, its is still illegal under federal law.
Hi is a cannabis company, bearing the text ‘hi’ in an orage loop as its logo, located in Portland. Its Parent company ‘Cannabis Sativa Inc.’ has applied for the Hi trademaek at the US Patent and Trademark Office. However, there seems to be a little catch to this. As the federal laws are yet to recognise marijuana or anything containing the substance as legal, the trademark, if received, shall not protect Hi from infringement of cannabis products which misappropriate their trademark.
This Trademark application has been made by the parent company for a set of its merchandise like T-shirts, caps, and other such products. However, the law cannot help against rivals setting up shop using the Hi trademark.
