Apple Gave The Thumbs-Up To An App About Weed

Massroots fans, rejoice.

Apple's come full circle regarding their decision to block a marijuana-based app from the app store, UPI reports. The weed social network Massroots, "a semi-anonymous social networking app for cannabis lovers worldwide," was initially blocked for violating terms against apps that promote drug use (Apple, have you been on Yik Yak?), but the tech giant decided to allow downloads for users who live in any of the 23 states that have medical marijuana laws or legalized marijuana. The decision came after fans of the app sent over 10,000 emails to Apple supporting the cause.

We'd guess B-Real is down for the cause, too: the Cypress Hill frontman is opening his own dispensary in California, as he recently told Billboard. "We're in a unique position because we have a lot of history behind us as it relates to music and the pro-legalization movement," he said. "We want it to be a place where you can come get quality meds responsibly and all that stuff, but we want it to be an experience as well."
