Get high with the new Tinder app for stoners

The couple who vape together, stay together

With weed becoming legal in more and more US states, it's no surprise that people are looking to cash in on the blazing boom, from scientists working on a breathalyser test for weed to Bob Marley's family launching the first global marijuana brand. Developers aren't any different. So say hi to High There!, a smartphone app that's basically Tinder for stoners. 

If you've ever had to quickly exit a promising relationship with a non-stoner, you'll get why this is necessary. It's always awkward when you meet someone and for the first few dates you're all "huh, what's weed?", only for it to go pear-shaped when you  reveal your true toking colours and confess you can't go and visit their parents because you need to "catch up on some bongs".

So cut out all that bullshit and just find someone who likes caning it too. Todd Mitchem is the man who created High There!, a project that draws on some personal pain.

Speaking to FastCoExist, Mitchem said: "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. Weeding out the Ms. Wrong from Ms. Right was complex. Selfishly I hope this helps others like me."

High There! works the same way as any other dating app – just set up a profile that says how you like smoking weed, what you like to do when you smoke weed and pretty soon you should find someone who likes the same weed stuff you do.

However, Mitchem claims that it isn't just for dating. "That cancer patient who needs friends and support, the guy who lands in Denver and does not know where people go to buy great products legally, they can also connect," he explained.  "Just the other day I connected with a dude and talked back and forth for a while about life, weed, and built a friendship."

Do you need to connect with a dude and talk about weed? Actually, I'm not sure I do, but whatever. High There! is only available to our readers in the US, given that smoking weed is still kind of against the law here. But if any Americans have found finding love difficult because of your soft drug addiction, maybe this is the app for you.
