Clint Eastwood calls out fake cannabis product endorsements

CBD News Aggregator – Actor-director Clint Eastwood is taking aim at two companies that have used his name to promote CBD products without his consent, making clear that the 60-year Hollywood veteran has never been involved in the cannabis business.

In federal lawsuits filed Wednesday — among the first against ingestible health supplement companies for faking celebrity endorsements — Eastwood seeks damages and a jury trial over his right of publicity and for trademark infringement, according to filings submitted to the Central District Court of California.

While not offering a view on CBD itself, Eastwood’s lawyers are seeking millions of dollars worth in damages “sufficient to deter unlawful conduct by defendants in the future.”
