White Hall Pharmacy, doing business as Doctor’s Orders Pharmacy, on Thursday filed a federal trademark infringement lawsuit against Doctor’s Orders RX Inc., one of the newly opened medical marijuana dispensaries in Garland County.

The Jefferson County business said the dispensary’s use of the similar name is causing confusion and causing the White Hall pharmacy, in business since 2009, to be inundated with calls about marijuana — people seeking it or wondering why they are selling it. They are seeking an emergency injunction to stop the use of their name.

    Everytime I read the words "medical marijuana" I think about that guy who was pictured in this paper with the smile and raised eyebrow who said........" I can't wait to get home to try it "

    A 38 year old man and his MOTHER waited in line for hours and it is HIM who can't wait to try it?

    That's such an original name to begin with. They couldn't come up with anything better? Like Sweetleaf Apothecary. If somebody wants to use that name it's ok by me. Fish, that's funny, could have been catfish too.

    General, take a wild guess as to how many people have died from an overdose of cannabis. Compare that to how many people have died from opioid overdoses and all of the ways you can die from too much alcohol.

    maxcady, you failed to mention the most common hazards associated with too much marijuana: a snack and a nap.
