Every weed strain that comes out needs an attractive name to lure pot-loving customers. However, in Oregon (one of the few states i the country that has legalized recreational bud use) a number of flavors have been banned due to their name. Recently, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (the body that oversees cannabis regulation) reviewed 500 weed strain names and identified 20 that had names that “may appeal to children.”
Included in the list of banned names was the highly sought-after Girl Scout Cookies strain, according to the Oregonian. Also on the banned list are Grape Ape, Candyland, Charlotte’s Web, Cinderella, Dr. Who, Bubblelicious, Smurf, Bruce Banner, Death Star, Skywalker and Jedi Kush. Don’t fret, though. Dispensaries will still be able to sell those buds, just under a different name. For example, Girl Scout Cookies will probably be labeled as “GSC,” (not to be confused with the G Stone Crips) to avoid any confusion. The Oregonian reports:
Companies that already have products in the new system with one of the names on the list will not be subject to immediate enforcement, said executive director Steven Marks. He said the agency will begin to inform companies about the new rule so they can take steps to label over the strain names and will screen out future packaging that contains those names.
