Hershey Sues Man Who Made Pot Candy


New Member
SAN JOSE, Calif. - It was a big enough bummer for Kenneth Affolter when he was sentenced to more than five years in prison for making pot-laced treats and soft drinks. Now he faces the wrath of a candy giant.

The Hershey Co. has sued Affolter, 40, for giving his marijuana goodies names like Stoney Rancher, Rasta Reese's and Keef Kat. Each came in
packaging similar to Hershey's Jolly Rancher, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kat candies, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Hershey's suit, filed earlier this month in U.S. District Court in San Jose, accuses Affolter of trademark infringement, trademark dilution and unfair competition.

The company is seeking $100,000 in damages.

Papers were served on Affolter on Tuesday while he was in a county jail awaiting transfer to state prison.

Affolter's lawyer, David M. Michael, said he was negotiating with Hershey.

I've been wondering for the last 6 years when this was going to happen.

Wasn't that guy in high times? I vaguely remember something like this last year. They used trim from dispensararies.

I did most of his products when I was in Socal.. cute concept, mediocre edible.
Taste like the real candy bar too!

Now I'm in Norcal where you can find some of the best medibles I've had the pleasure of eating.

how do you make marijuana laced soft drinks?
`:smoke2: THC simple syrup is what is in lollypops, hard candies and juice like beverages...it is a pharma grade simple sugar solution which is a medium used to flavor meds @ Walgreens pharmacy and so on...the other beverage would be "Green Dragon" which is marijuana alcohol/tincture mixed as a alcoholic drink. There is tea...boil fine grind dank bud, boil 1/3cup whole milk to 2/3 water and toss in a bit of butter...simmer slow after boil was reached for 20min...the fat binds w/ THC and your temperature will not exceed the range to destroy your effort. Drink after straining out the bud, add honey or sugar & enjoy(the effect will be milder in this tea though).:peace:
I have slow warmed whole milk & made hot chocolate using similar technique described above.:3:
