Snoop In Battle With Toronto Maple Leafs Over Weed Logo

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Snoop Dogg is reportedly locked in a trademark infringement battle with bosses at Canadian hockey team the Toronto Maple Leafs over a weed logo.

The Gin & Juice star filed an application with the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office in November of 2015 for a logo for his marijuana products line Leafs By Snoop, but the design didn’t sit well with the ice hockey team’s chiefs.

Earlier this month, bosses at the Maple Leafs’ parent company, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, filed an opposition and asked for more time to detail their legal filings.

According to TSN.ca, the 44-year-old’s logo features white lettering over a seven-leaf green plant and closely resembles the Canadian ice hockey team’s logo.

Snoop Dogg, a well-known lover of weed, launched the company in Colorado, where recreational marijuana is legal, in November. The line features a range of cannabis flowers and concentrates in eight different strains.

The line, which will be stocked at licensed cannabis dispensary chain LivWell in Colorado, was hand-picked by the rapper, and the collection also features candy and chocolate bars infused with cannabis oil.
