Citigroup Wants Pot Dispensary To Stop Using Its Logo

Harsh, man. Citidank, a California pot dispensary, has come under fire from a similarly named New York bank whose logo resembles that of the newly opened marijuana superstore.

Citigroup, the parent company of Citibank, reached out to the dispensary after the Post dropped a dime on the small business, asking the bank if there was any connection.

“Unless you are as high as a kite, you know that Citi isn’t affiliated with this business in any way and we have requested that they stop using Citi’s name and logo,” said Danielle Romero-Apsilos, a spokeswoman for the $182 billion banking giant.

The dispensary, which just opened last month, said in a full back-page ad in Coachella Valley Weekly that it caters to “all your danking needs,” including early bird specials, happy hours from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and a “special gift” for the first 50 customers.

A call to Citidank wasn’t returned.
