(Seattle, WA) -- A Seattle marijuana cooperative is being sued by the Hershey Corporation for trademark infringement. The candy company says Conscious Care Cooperative uses trademarks and designs that are similar to those of Hershey's Reese's and Mr. Goodbar brands, using names like "Reefer's Peanut Butter Cups." In its lawsuit, Hershey also says it fears consumers may inadvertently consume the cooperative's products thinking that they're ordinary chocolate candy. There's been no comment from Conscious Care Cooperative.
