An Annapolis, Maryland, cannabis-themed apparel company decided to discontinue selling its parody sticker looking like the Old Bay spice jar, due to allegations of copyright infringement. Crabcakes & Cannabis said it received a “threatening” letter from Hunt Valley, Maryland-based spice company McCormick and Company, stating that the sticker, which had the words “420 BUD,” violated their trademark and threatened to tarnish their reputation.
