Oregon Weed Dispensary Delivering Free Pizza Super Bowl Weekend

An Oregon cannabis dispensary will be adding a free pizza to marijuana deliveries this weekend to celebrate the Super Bowl. The Mt. Hood Cannabis Company, located in Rhododendron, Oregon, is offering a free cheese or pepperoni pizza with purchases of a half-ounce of cannabis flower.

Devin Houston, the director of marketing for the dispensary, said in a press release that pizza with pot seemed like a great way to promote the company’s cannabis delivery service.

“We were enjoying a joint and a slice of Mogul Mountain pizza while brainstorming marketing opportunities for our dispensary when it hit us,” said Houston in a statement. “Let’s announce our new weed delivery with free pizza, and what better way to kick it off than over Super Bowl weekend. Our shop works really hard to engage the local business community and since their pizza was so inspirational, partnering with Mogul Mountain Pizza was a no brainer.”

Mt. Hood Cannabis has partnered with the local pizzeria, which will provide take-and-bake pizzas to the dispensary. Customers who purchase a half-ounce of flower (starting at just 50 bucks) Feb. 1-3 will receive their choice of a cheese or pepperoni pizza at no extra charge to pop in the oven at home.

Houston told High Times that the plan should do well for the dispensary and the customers.

“That way they have time to roll a joint, get baked, and the pizza’s ready to enjoy,” he said.

Houston said he believes that local grower Terra Canna Farm’s recent harvest of the strain Hawaiian Dutch, testing at 26 percent THC, will pair particularly well with pizza. The offer is available for both delivery orders and purchases made at the retail location.

Dispensary Supports Local Community

Houston said that collaborating with another business is part of the Mt. Hood Cannabis Company’s commitment to being a good neighbor.

“The best thing for the cannabis industry to be successful is community engagement and local business support,” he said.

Houston noted that in addition to supporting other nearby businesses, the dispensary also partners with its customers to help local charities. In November, Mt. Hood Cannabis sponsored a food drive that collected 450 pounds of food for a local food bank and a December campaign collected about 100 pairs of winter gloves for needy kids.

The Mt. Hood Cannabis Company is a family-operated boutique medical and recreational dispensary located on Mt. Hood in Rhododendron, Oregon. The dispensary’s delivery operation serves the local area, including the ski resorts at the top of Mt. Hood.

The Super Bowl will be played between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Feb. 3, at 3:30 Eastern Standard Time.

Bill Introduced to Allow Colorado Cops to Use Own Judgement in Cannabis DUI Arrests

In Colorado, legislators are considering a bill that would leave the criteria of cannabis DUI arrests entirely up to police officers, getting rid of the current legal bloodstream limit of five nanograms entirely. Proponents of the plan rightfully say that the amount of cannabis in the bloodstream needed to inhibit a driver varies from person to person. What could go wrong with letting cops be the judge of when someone is driving under the influence?

“This will negatively impact people of color and poor people,” Larissa Bolivar of the Cannabis Consumer Coalition told Westword.

State Representative Dylan Roberts introduced House Bill 1146, which would allow officers to make an arrest if there is “evidence to believe that a driver had consumed alcohol or drugs, that the driver was substantially incapable of safely operating a vehicle, and that the driver had any measurable amount of a drug in his or her blood or oral fluid.”

Under the proposed law, no blood or oral fluid test would be required, and the only criteria for arrest would be officers’ opinions of the driver’s capability at the time. The bill would mirror a ruling that was recently reached by a Massachusetts court, which upheld a cannabis DUI conviction that had been based solely on an officer’s perception of the defendant’s driving skills.

There is some reason to distrust police impartiality in the state. Last year, an Aurora police officer was recorded by his body camera making racist comments regarding Black bystanders at the scene of a police shooting. He was initially fired, but returned to the force 10 months later with a demotion.

Cannabis legalization has failed to correct racial profiling in Colorado marijuana arrests. The Drug Policy Alliance found that during the first two years after 2012’s Amendment 64 passed, arrests fell by 51 percent for white people, but by only 25 percent for Black people. In 2014, the arrest rate for Blacks was three times the arrest rate for whites.

But the fact no state has devised a fool-proof method of gauging whether drivers are impaired by cannabis is undeniable. Cannabis blood testing technology is so far unable to gauge when cannabis was ingested, or whether its presence in the body of a driver indicates impaired driving capabilities.

“The five nanogram number is scientifically dubious, and not on the same level [of accuracy] as a 0.08 alcohol limit for drivers,” Roberts told Westword. “Someone who’s a habitual user could be totally fine to drive at or above five nanograms, while someone who doesn’t use it a lot could be really impaired at three nanograms.”

But cannabis consumer watchdogs point out that many substances could cause a driver to perform in a way that alerts police, such as cold medication.

“The biggest issue I see so far in this bill is a defendant being able to provide affirmative defense to show he or she had not consumed drugs or alcohol between the time they were stopped and the blood or oral sample was taken,” Bolivar said.

Snoop Dogg Facing Legal Issues From Canadian Hockey Team Over Weed Company Logo

There’s hardly a more iconic figure in the canna-game than Snoop Dogg. But it’s partly because of an icon that the rapper-turned-weed mogul is currently facing legal issues from. It all boils down to a trademark dispute with the Toronto Maple Leafs, a flagship franchise of the National Hockey League. The team says Snoop’s signature cannabis brand, Leafs By Snoop, infringes on the trademark and logo of the hockey team.

Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Franchise Dogs Snoop Dogg Over Trademark Dispute

In fact, the Maple Leafs organization has been dogging Snoop Dogg over his cannabis brand’s logo since 2016. That was when the hockey franchise first filed its opposition against the Doggfather. At the time, the NHL team’s parent company, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE) had to ask the U.S. trademark office for more time to detail exactly what it opposed.

Snoop Dogg didn’t actually file for a trademark for his cannabis brand until July 2018. Then, in December, MLSE finally filed the legal paperwork challenging Snoop’s trademark. Intellectual property law is intricate and complicated, making it difficult to prove when one company is actually infringing on the IP rights of another. But the Maple Leafs’ case against Leafs By Snoop makes several arguments–whether a judge finds them convincing is a different matter.

Hockey Franchise Says Snoop’s Branding is Too Similar

In the first place, the Toronto Maple Leafs have a problem with the way Snoop’s brand spells “leafs.” In standard English, of course, the plural of leaf is leaves. So the Maple Leafs organization say that’s strike one against Snoop’s brand. “The LEAFS mark reflects a highly unusual and distinctive spelling,” the organization wrote in its filing.

Then, there’s the issue of the logo itself. Leafs by Snoop uses a logo featuring white text over a green, 7-point leaf design. Any marijuana consumer would instantly recognize it as an homage to a cannabis plant leaf. The Toronto Maple Leafs also use white text over a broad-leaf design. But that leaf, taking a cue from the flag of Canada, is a maple leaf, not a cannabis leaf.

Now, does the maple leaf as displayed on the Canadian flag and the hockey team’s logo kind of look like a pot leaf? Sure: legalization advocates have long waved Canadian flags emblazoned with a weed leaf where the maple leaf should be. (Interestingly enough, some in Canada’s government tried to ban cannabis-themed merch like that in the lead up to legalization.)

Are Hockey Fans Really that Confused?

The Maple Leafs insist that the similarities in spelling and appearance of the two trademarks “could lead to confusion.” The hockey franchise also claimed in its legal filing that Snoop’s business was infringing on rights it hand long-established. “The Toronto Maple Leafs hockey club has been an iconic member of the NHL since the league’s inception in 1917.” The filing goes on to mention the team’s “large fan base” in the U.S. and Canada.

If there’s anything Canadians love more than cannabis, it’s hockey. And that’s exactly what puts the argument that a 100-year-old hockey team could be confused with a 3-year-old cannabis brand based in Colorado, on thin ice.
