Taco Bell, Del Taco Unite to Fight Stoner Expo That Used Their Logos Without Permission
I think you can divide the world--or at least Southern California--into two types of people: those who love Taco Bell and those who love Del Taco. And then there are the stoners who swear by both of them for midnight munchies, who'll shove either of the two down their gullets, especially if it's extra-cheesy.
The two companies will never acknowledge this latter fan base, even though they were the ones who made Del Scorcho sauce into a modern-day sacrament and secured the popularity of Doritos Locos Tacos. Stoners should be angry at the lack of respect, and now they have even more reason to be angry at the two now that the companies have united to go after the upcoming Kush Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Turns out that the convention devoted to all things, um, medicinal used the Taco Bell and Del Taco logos without the permission of the companies, who would've never allowed such use in the first place. Kush Expo organizers took down the logos from their website, but promotional literature already published apparently also had the logos.
Not a smart move, Kushites (and why didn't you advertise with us in our latest issue? Just saying...), but we nevertheless side with ustedes. It's time that Taco Bell and Del Taco acknowledge their most fevered fans--perhaps it's time for a boycott?
