A new Denver-based dating Android app wants stoners to find true love.
High There! uses a Tinder-like interface to match marijuana enthusiasts based on their pot-specific interests, such as edibles and vaping, and their self-defined energy levels when high.
“I hated dating on other sites and apps because as soon as the idea of my cannabis consumption came up—date over. I actually walked out of a date (after paying of course) and said to myself, that’s it,” High There! CEO Todd Mitchem told Fast Company. “Weeding out the Ms. Wrong from Ms. Right was complex. Selfishly I hope this helps others like me.”
Location-based user pools are protected by each state’s marijuana laws — making it only functional where pot is fully legal or available for medicinal purposes.
Fast Company reports the current user poll is “still small,” but Mitchem is optimistic, emphasizing that the app isn’t just for romance, as he hopes it will bring together all users, cancer patients and connoisseurs alike.
How High There! will do if Massachusetts’ laws expand and when medicinal dispensaries are finally up and kickin’ is debatable, but you’ve got to give the company credit for trying, especially when there are competitors like MassRoots, 420 Singles, Stoner Singles, and My 420 Mate (all real) out there.
