Apple Approves Controversial Joint-Making App
Here's something few had seen coming. Apple has apparently - and surprisingly - given the green light to "Roll Your Own," a free application that delivers a fairly comprehensive selection of tips, pictures, and even video tutorials designed to help users "master the art" of rolling, packing, and "crutches." Yes, it's an app that Cheech and Chong would be proud of.
While the app is still available for download via iTunes, there's a tangible sense that it won't be for much longer. Even though Apple has signed off on its inclusion in the App Store (though its only available for download by users over 17 years of age), there's a strong possibility that one of the individuals pictured in the app's advertising materials will object to his likeness being used. As illustrated in the image above, California Governor, actor, and former joint-enthusiast Arnold Schwarzenegger is pictured in the app's official promotional material.
Because of "frequent/intense alcohol, tobacco, or drug use or references," the app is clearly flagged by Apple for usage among mature audiences. Still, Apple's inconsistently stringent approval policies are once again on full display. Some, understandably, are "outraged" by the app's inclusion. Others, of course, are celebrating Apple's decision and hope it won't be revoked any time soon. But time will only tell which group will ultimately have their way. For now, at least, "Roll Your Own" isn't going up in smoke.

Got it. Love it. Though I don't need this since rolling my own *tobacco* cigars is not quite as difficult
But it's definitely going to be fun when I get to tell everyone there's an app for that.

Nothing wrong with an app showing how to roll your own tobacco cigarettes, and I'd assume there is no reference to illegal substances.

This is B.S. !!! we all know it is intended to roll joints and this is ridiculous.. I am so against this crap, weed is illegal (in most places) so should this app. I can't believe this was approved

Thanks essany this is a great article and finally had me cracking a smile for you not at you. I would have seen it soon had I not been using the app. As for dq13 chill out it's not illegal in California just pay off the right person and you can have the meds any time you need it. Also remember apple is California based, think about it.

Most people can't afford to buy their cigs these days so they have to roll their own. However if we are talking about weed is legal in Michigan as long as its medical.
I found other apps in itunes about weed. So if people are going to freak about weed apps looks like some of these other apps have been there before this one!

I do mind my own business and if you need for medical purposes, then you will be thought how to use it when prescribed... there is no need for an app to teach a 17 y/o how to roll weed. I am grown up, I am not 14, and I am against drugs... this is my opinion and it won't change just because you like the app. I never attacked any body, I just expressed my opinion towards this app, not towards drug addicts being happy that this was aproved

Dq13 are you also against iPint? Or any other apps that glorify alcohol and tobacco aswell then? You do realise alcohol is one of the most damaging drugs but people use it freely and most of the time without any discrimination from others. But If someone smokes a joint their a drug addict WTF?

There are tons of people who roll their own legal cigarettes because they can choose a variety of different blends and flavors of tobacco and it's cheaper. For a 17 year old who is gonna just take up smoking general cigarettes now he/she can roll their own. This app doesn't give you directions on how to buy weed.
Go join a PTA or something...

Man I wish some of my buddies had this in high school. Maybe then it wouldn't of been so loosely packed that when you ashed the cherry fell out. Oh memories of days so long ago. Any one wanna pick up some zig zags and this app and I'll get the grass and we will see how good the techniques in this app are?

"there's an app for that!"

Killing civilians with an AC-130 gunship is illegal, too, but there's an app for that.
Lighten up Francis...
You know what else? I'm currently nice toasted while posting this. Totally illegal - for sure - but only because ignorant ***** like you are in the majority - for now. Marijuana will be legal in your lifetime - bank on it.
Addicts, eh? Simply stunning...
