Apple Inc. is launching a new mobile app allowing marijuana users to network and meet potential mates about the best places to score the drug. UPI reports:
Named “High There,” the Tinder-style app was created by CEO Todd Mitchem after one of his dinner dates quickly ended when he revealed his marijuana use. “We wanted to build a cool piece of technology that solved the problem of where do million and millions of cannabis consumers go to meet people, connect with people and build relationships,” Mitchem told Mashable.
The app is based in Denver, Colo., where recreational marijuana use was made legal in 2012. High There is only available in the 23 states that have legalized medical marijuana, Mitchem said.
Aside from pairing weed-smokers, the app allows users to discern preferences, such as whether a person smokes wax hash with a vaporizer or regular marijuana in cigarette form, as well as whether a person is energetic or sluggish when high. Users may also network and exchange advice about dispensary prices and other details.
“A lot of people say we’re the Tinder of weed, but that’s only one facet of the whole thing,” Mitchem said. “It’s so much bigger.”
