It really amazes me how many have applied for trademarks – and have paid real money to do so – for products or services that include “medical marijuana” in their description. As of this search 258 applications (min price $275 x $70,950 in gov’t fees just for the application). Here is a list.

3) The common rejection looks a lot like the argument raised in the letter that the goods and services cannot be lawfully used. After all, they violate Federal law.
4) If you go thru Legal Zoom to file your application, you aren’t going to get the advice on how to avoid the CSA. You might look for a lawyer who can give you this advice. For now, I’d suggest you look to state law registrations if you’re looking to register/brand/protect the actual product/extract/strain/delivery device/vaporizer for medical marijuana.
