Dovel & Luner Sues Jeeter for Mislabeled THC Content
SANTA MONICA – On Thursday, Dovel & Luner filed a class action lawsuit against DreamFields Inc., and Med for America Inc., on behalf of California consumers who purchased cannabis products with inaccurate THC content labels.
The lawsuit alleges that Defendants, who make, sell, and market “Jeeter” brand cannabis products, overcharged consumers by illegally selling products whose THC content was substantially lower than the amounts listed on the label.
The Complaint, filed in the Superior Court of the State of California County of Los Angeles, alleges that DreamFields Inc. and Med for America Inc. violated the consumer protection laws of California, including California’s Unfair Competition Law and False Advertising Law, among other violations.
Additionally, the Complaint states, “consumers reasonably believe that they are receiving a product that has the THC content that is listed on the label.” The Complaint alleges that the Jeeter products, however, substantially overstate the amount of actual THC in the product, sometimes by “70-100%.” “Consumers are willing to pay more for cannabis products with higher THC content, and expect to pay less for cannabis products with lower THC content,” said Christin Cho of Dovel & Luner. “The Complaint alleges that by labeling their products with inflated THC numbers, Defendants are overcharging consumers. Plaintiffs brought this lawsuit to protect California consumers from being overcharged.”
