An Ephrata, Washington, marijuana retailer is the target of a media empire that labels itself as the biggest brand name in pot. Trans-High Corp., parent company of the publication High Times, has sued shop owner Richard Reimers and his business, previously known as High Time Station, for trademark infringement. The lawsuit filed Monday in Spokane follows letters and a proposed written agreement to change the retailer’s name sent by the New York-based publishing company earlier this summer. It is not the first time the company has sued in what it calls bids to protect trademarks that have been held since the 1970s. But it is the first time such a legal action has been taken against a seller under Washington’s legalization of recreational pot/Kip Hill, SR. More here. (Wikipedia photo: High Times cover)
