An injunction sought by the National Law Enforcement Association of America was successful in preventing Yankee Candle from adding a few new scents to its candle collection. Yankee Candle had also been hoping on getting these same scents placed on Air Fresheners.
The Burnt Cannabis Candle, The Jim Beam Candle, The Jack Daniels Candle and the Beer Candle as well as the Burnt Cannabis, Jim Beam, Jack Daniels and Beer Air Fresheners were not sold this Christmas season. However, Yankee Candle plans to appeal and have these new candles and Air fresheners out in time for Christmas, 2006.
Law enforcement felt that the Candle/Air Freshener Defense would prevent them from getting the requisite reasonable suspicion and or probable cause necessary to investigate people for possession of cannabis and DUI.
