May not have a future in the legal marijuana industry – at least in name:

Recently Oregon officials banned the use of the name Girl Scout Cookies as a marijuana strain. They argued they it appealed to kids. Whether or not that’s true, it’s possible that other states will follow suit. If they don’t, it’s quite possible that it could become a copyright issue which could prevent its use. However, the solution is easy; simply rename it to something else. Or, as many have suggested, simply use its acronym GSC, which many already know and use.
