Mars Inc.’s Wrigley unit, owner of the Skittles, Starburst and Life Savers brands, sued the owners of several online shops to block them from selling THC-infused products that infringe trademarks for the candy maker’s iconic products.

Wrigley cited the sale of “Medicated Skittles,” “Starburst Gummies” and “Life Savers Medicated Gummies” as examples of what it said were trademark infringement and dilution, and unfair competition.
