This week, Jimmy Buffett announced a licensing deal with Suttera Holdings, a medical marijuana startup licensed to operate in Florida and Texas. Beginning next spring, Buffet’s “Coral Reefer” brand will appear on the company’s line of medicinal marijuana products such as edibles, lotions and vape pens. Unlike Buffet’s other licensing partnerships, including “Margaritaville” hotels, restaurants and casinos across the world, his latest venture into the burgeoning cannabis market will face a unique challenge: state trademarking law.

In light of the announcement of the deal, would you be interested in speaking with Ed Weisz, a nation-leading intellectual property attorney at Cozen O’Connor, about the complexities surrounding the licensing of trademarks for cannabis businesses? Ed can provide insight into the steps that Suttera and other marijuana companies must take to license their business and products when operating in different states, as cannabis businesses are subject to varying state laws for trademarks.

For background on Ed, practices in all areas of intellectual property law, most recently focusing his work on U.S. patent and trademark prosecution, counseling, and licensing. You can view his full bio here: https://www.cozen.com/people/bios/weisz-edward
