A GROWING MARKET: AN UPDATE ON LEGALIZATION, REGISTRATION AND PROTECTION OF CANNABIS MARKS IN THE US
In late 2017, the CITMA Review published an article about cannabis trademarks in the United States. At that time, just seven states and the District of Columbia had legalized cannabis for recreational use. Much has changed since, and the market for cannabis is on the rise. Recreational cannabis is now legal in eleven states, and several others are actively considering legalization. With this renewed momentum for cannabis acceptance and legalization, it seemed timely to review key legal and regulatory changes, explore registration options, and offer pointers for IP practitioners. This article was first published in the September 2019 issue of CITMA Review, the journal of the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (CITMA).
