apple-marijuana-apps-aaplApple recently agreed to let MassRoots, a social media marijuana app for cannabis users, back on its App Store.  The return of the app does have limitations. One such restriction placed on the app is that it can only be downloaded in states where medical marijuana is legal, reports SFGate.

MassRoots was added to the App Store in July 2013. However, it was alter removed in Nov. of last year. When it was removed, the creator of the marijuana app offered to restrict it to states that allow medical marijuana. However, Apple refused and didn’t change its stance on the matter until Thursday, SFGate notes.

Following its ban by Apple, MassRoots users started signing a petition to allow the marijuana app back on the App Store. The petition gained more than 10,000 signatures, reports TechCrunch.
