Following the press release issued yesterday by RX Green, it’s pretty clear that the Colorado cannabis company has been unable to patch up its differences with Mary’s Medicinals that we reported in late March. According to the company, it has filed a counter lawsuit in Denver District Court against Eleutherian Enterprises, the parent of Mary’s Medicinals, accusing it of “libel, slander, civil conspiracy, defamation, Consumer Protection Act violations and intentional interference with contractual relations.”
In March, Mary’s Medicinals stated that RX Green had engaged in “libel, slander, civil conspiracy, intentional interference with prospective business relations, and intentional interference with contractual relations.” The company had suggested that the former owner, Joshua Meacham, had submitted fraudulent reports about Mary’s Medicinals to regulators and that RX Green misappropriated its website content.
RX Green has accused its competitor of spreading malicious rumors online, claiming that the sources are Nicole Smith, Founder and President, and COO Lynn Honderd, who were also named in the suit along with other employees. The company also alleged that it had cannabis products produced by Mary’s Medicinals tested at a certified laboratory that had “a fraction of the active ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as advertised on the product labels.”
