Apple Reverses Policy, Allows Marijuana Apps

Posted by · 8573 views · Translate

Apple has reversed its policy banning marijuana apps from the App Store and is now allowing the apps so long as they are geo-restricted to the 23 states with laws that permit medical use of the substance.

MassRoots announced the news yesterday:

Over the past few weeks, cannabis consumers around the world united behind a common message: cannabis apps should be made available in the states that have voted to legalize its medicinal or adult use. Today, we’re excited to announce the App Store has changed its enforcement guidelines to permit cannabis social apps in the 23 states that have legalized medicinal cannabis. MassRoots is now available in the App Store!

MassRoots thanked the National Cannabis Industry Association, ArcView Group, Whaxy, and The Cannabist for their support and the tens of thousands of users and advocates that signed their petition to Apple.

You can download MassRoots from the App Store for free.

Brian, your a moron! What, did you copy and paste that entire paragraph yourself? Good job, now here is an eddible for you! Go fu€k yourself! Do some damn research you slimy thesaurus. My friend who was 24 years old blew his brains out with his own revolver while he was high on that medical marihuana sh!t, because some "medical doctor" said, "ok, because your in pain, here you go son. It's all about the money you dumb fu€k, and making our society brain dead and useless, just like yourself!

WTF...I mean WTF! How many people die or kill other people or themselves EVERY DAY because of abuse of alcohol?! Your "friend" was someone who needed help. You can't blame his insane actions on marijuana. This was somebody with deep problems who would have found another chemical to abuse and then kill himself. Yes, the doctor should have seen the problem if he had taken the time.

Fear of Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is unfounded. Not based on any science or fact whatsoever. So please prohibitionists, we beg you to give your scare tactics, "Conspiracy Theories" and "Doomsday Scenarios" over the inevitable Legalization of Marijuana a rest. Nobody is buying them anymore these days. Okay? Furthermore, if all prohibitionists get when they look into that nice, big and shiny, crystal ball of theirs, while wondering about the future of marijuana legalization, is horror, doom, and despair, well then I suggest they return that thing as quickly as possible and reclaim the money they shelled out for it, since it's obviously defective. The prohibition of marijuana has not decreased the supply nor the demand for marijuana at all. Not one single iota, and it never will. Just a huge and complete waste of our tax dollars to continue criminalizing citizens for choosing a natural, non-toxic, relatively benign plant proven to be much safer than alcohol. If prohibitionists are going to take it upon themselves to worry about "saving us all" from ourselves, then they need to start with the drug that causes more death and destruction than every other drug in the world COMBINED, which is alcohol! Why do prohibitionists feel the continued need to vilify and demonize marijuana when they could more wisely focus their efforts on a real, proven killer, alcohol, which again causes more destruction, violence, and death than all other drugs, COMBINED? Prohibitionists really should get their priorities straight and/or practice a little live and let live. They'll live longer, happier, and healthier, with a lot less stress if they refrain from being bent on trying to control others through Draconian Marijuana Laws.

Seems like this policy has blended in with the real world.
