Dunno- I think the name is Snickers-worthy. At the same time, can't blame Hershey for Barring them from doing it if it's a similar and confusable product that some Butterfinger could pick up thinking it was the genuine Whatchamacallit and end up higher than the Milky Way.

I had a 'friend' who had some pot peanutbutter cups. They came in a package that looked like the Reece's peanutbutter cups. But I noticed that there's no nutritional information on them. Or on the pot lollipops my 'friend' got. That kindof makes me wonder what kind of oversight there is on the making of these 'edibles'. Does the FDA do anything to make sure these food products are safe? Does the Health Department check the kitchens for cleanliness, and stuff? Are there any controls on the food-stuffs?

I guarantee ANYTHING will be funny after you eat a half-dozen of them!

I prefer to burn mine, thanks.

Oh come one, it's funny. I don't smoke and even i can see it's a good gag. I don't blame Hershey for putting a stop to it, but i acknowledge it's a good gag.

Very good sir. You go my vote for funny comment.

You burn your peanut butter cups? To each his own, I guess...

I honestly can't decide which I want more, regular or "enhanced" peanut butter cups.  Either way, I now have a craving.
 
2014-06-06 05:12:08 PM
I often wonder what the thought process is behind people that do stuff like that. I mean it's not hard to make the name different enough that no one would blink an eye. Instead they give it an infringe-worthy name for some insane reason. Thinking people would <i>actually</i> confuse their product with the real thing and buy it instead? It makes no sense, it doesn't increase profit and only hurts in the end when they get sued.

Dude,first you eat the enhanced (giggle) cups, then you eat the regular cups.

Then you eat some Hostess pies, and cherry coke, and Funyuns, and... wait, what was I talking about?

The Marjiuana industry have to worry about trademarks and infringement when it was still black market.

People making pot laced parody products, you're not helping.  It gives the legal pot business all the credibility of the porn parody industry.  Take yourselves seriously and come up with some original names for your products.  They don't have to be dull look to Ben and Jerry's for inspiration.

Unless their chocolate is some weird version of plastic, I don't see how the pot company could possibly be copying Hershey's.

Considering it's federally illegal, I can't imagine the FDA being ALLOWED to regulate it for consumption.

Don't be dicks trying to play of someone else's brand. That is a clear no-no and you should know better, especially when it involves less than legal substances you're trying to pass off as legitimate.

It's bad enough they have pot named after the Girl Scouts, Bubble Yum, etc. Adding in packaged products with names that rip-off a well known brands is just asking for trouble.

This.  Or, if you're going to make parodies, get them licensed, pay the fee.  It's no longer the wild west, you don't have to worry because it's already illegal age it was.  A lot of these pot dealers seemed to think that all legalization would change was that they wouldn't get arrested anymore.  A whole lot of other rules come into play when you're running out of a storefront, not your backpack.  A buddy of mine lives in Colorado, and he claims that the person most pissed off about legalization was his old pot dealer.  He went from making good money doing nothing harder than sitting at home, answering the phone and the door, to having to get a real job, as his old clients now go to legal stores.

So many people missing the awesome news in this. (In my opinion...not fact, obviously...but I'm hopeful)

A legitimate, long-standing, respectable company is suing marijuana folk.  Do you realize how legitimate this is making the industry look?  Maybe not now, no, but eventually, when they see the laws being followed and find that Hershey's can partner with Little Timmy's Grow and Clip shop for the "enhancement", man...huge growth industry there.

I think this is great!

I went to a Radiohead concert with my ex and a mutual friend about 10 years ago. She had smuggled in some pot brownies. Being a drug aficionado but never having tried brownies, I figured I could handle a big-ass hunk. I wolfed it down before the show even started.
BIG MISTAKE.
By the time Radiohead took the stage, I can barely sit up straight, let alone pay attention to the music. I remember telling myself "okay, If I can just focus on the music for ten seconds I'll be fine. 1,2,3,4,5,6 hey I'm doing really good at this GODDAMMIT." I really don't remember the show at all. Then I had to nonchalantly convince my friends to just hang out in the parking lot for 2 hours because I was too high to drive and didn't want to tell them.
I still fared better than my friend & bandmate. He did mushrooms and ended up making out with our bass player, thinking she was his ex-girlfriend from years ago.
Oh, I should tell my mushrooms story too. I'll get to that in a bit.

The porn industry has all but given up on clever titles, its all "This Aint _Actual Title_: An XXX Parody". Just so theres absolutely no confusion.

I do - it's a clear parody, so Hershey can take their shiat excuse for chocolate and DIAF.

Friend gave us one of the edibles, and we didn't think much of it. Couldn't really enjoy it knowing how strong it was, and so we left in the medicine cupboard. (Can't leave it in the freezer with kids around) Took the basket out of the cupboard to get a bandage or something, and left the house without putting away the basket. The dogs can reach the counter and have a noses like, well, dogs.  Poor dog was so paranoid for about 8 hours, and still wobbly the next morning. Those edibles don't mess around.
