Why you can’t wait to protect your brand and logo with a trademark registration.

Trademarks help businesses protect their products and distinguish them from competitors. With a recognizable trademark, customers know which business is supplying the products they purchase and use.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs began accepting Medical Marijuana Facilities Licensing applications December 2018. Soon, hundreds of new medical marihuana businesses will begin competing with one another in this new licensed industry. No longer limited to “the one caregiver/five patient” model, these new businesses will market their products to qualifying patients throughout the state.
