SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Hershey is suing a Lafayette man who
admitted to making marijuana-laced candy and soft drinks for
trademark infringement.

Kenneth Affolter faces more than five years in prison for
manufacturing forbidden treats with names like Stoney Rancher,
Rasta Reese's and Keef Kat.

Each came in packaging similar to Hershey's Jolly Rancher,
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kat candies.

Hershey's suit filed this month in San Jose alleges the
marijuana munchies violates its trademark rights.

The company is seeking 100 thousand dollars in damages.
