Survey of Marijuana Law in the United States: Intellectual Property issues related to Legal Marijuana Sale

Summary of Intellectual Property Issues

Marijuana is still federally outlawed and as such the list of intellectual property protections for marijuana businesses, despite operating legally in their state, is short. Patents and trademarks are two vital pieces of intellectual property and their application in the marijuana industry is still being explored as more states pass statutes legalizing marijuana at some level every year.
