Wanna score some righteous weed? There's an app for that


Word on the street (or at least on CNet) has it that Apple has approved an iPhone application succinctly dubbed Cannabis. For just $2.99, a tap to the touchscreen will locate legal marijuana dealers -- or, under darker circumstances, attorneys who specialize in marijuana arrests. If you're located in a state where medical cannabis is illegal, the app can help you find local branches of advocacy organizations agitating for decriminalization.

It's not surprising Apple would allow the app on the store. The Cupertino, California–based company has had precedents for establishing other progressive (and potentially controversial) corporate policies. It awards full benefits to same-sex companions, and even voiced opposition to California's amendment banning same-sex marriage last year -- an unusual move for a public company.
