In the happy case that you live in one of the 23 states that have already decriminalized cannabis use, a new dating app for cannabis smokers may allow you to find your perfect match. High There has become the app to download if and when you enjoy consuming marijuana and are on the search for a kindred spirit.
According to the creator of the app, the service’s reason for creation was the difficulty of maintaining relationships which had begun thanks to conventional dating websites. Todd Mitchem, the company’s CEO, explains that any possible date would come to an abrupt close when the idea of cannabis consumption came up.
As a result, he created High There, the app which allows fellow users to reach one and other and easily connect without judgment. Available for download in Google’s Play Store, the application is somewhat Tinder-esque. By swiping right, you sort out the people you’d like to connect with and by swiping left, you eliminate those who you don’t think are particularly right for you. The novelty, however, is that cannabis smoking preferences are included in the user’s profile, so that you can filter the results presented to you according to your own smoking preferences.
Prefer vaping? Then browse through fellow vapers. Do you feel energized after smoking weed? Then you can simply find those who feel the same and have included the information in their profiles.
The application is only downloadable in those states where marijuana is legal for either medical or recreational purposes. Yet the application is not just a simple dating app. For those who use marijuana for medical purposes, especially for cancer patients, it may be a way of finding friends or people who have gone through the same situation. Additionally, the application can also be used by those visiting other cities and wanting to procure their products legally.
“Just the other day I connected with a dude and talked back and forth for a while about life, weed, and built a friendship,”
Mitchem said in a statement.
Currently, 23 out of the 50 US states plus Washington DC allow marijuana to be used for recreational or medical purposes, after Colorado became the first state to completely decriminalize the sale and consumption of marijuana in 2014.
