The writers and editors of High Times magazine are probably firing up a celebratory bowl right now ... because a judge just helped them crush a literary competitor.
We broke the story ... High Times -- which devotes itself to all things weed -- sued a competing magazine known as Mile High Times -- saying readers would be unfairly confused.
It wasn't much of a fight ... Mile High Times essentially threw in the towel, agreeing to stop using the phrase "high times" and destroying all publications and websites that use those words. Plus, it can't use other pot-themed phrases made popular by High Times, including "Cannabis Cup."
But, hey, it can use the words "mile high" as much as it wants.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em.
