US (NC): Company takes aim at cannabis marketing firm

The Scotts Company, which owns the popular ScottsMiracle-Gro plant food brand, is suing a company which it says is using its marks for products aimed at cannabis and hemp producers.

In the complaint, filed at the US District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina last Thursday, June 27, the Scotts Company claimed that Miracle-Gro Marketing had infringed its ‘Miracle-Gro’ and ‘Gro’ marks.

The Scotts Company claimed MiracleGro Marketing was using the marks for its own cannabis-themed branding.

According to its own website, MiracleGro Marketing aims to deliver “specialised cannabis marketing solutions just for the marijuana, CBD and hemp industry”.

The company’s services include web design, marketing consultancy, and search-engine optimisation services.
