For years the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office has taken a hardline approach and rejected trademarks for products containing cannabis. The government’s position has been that the products are illegal. With changing marijuana laws, and perhaps a new administration, I’d expect to see the government soften its position, and ultimately, reverse course. In perhaps a sign of the times, the Patent Office recently allowed a patent for a psychedelic containing cannabinoids. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/patent-combining-psychedelics-with-cannabinoids-allowed-by-uspto-301226012.html
