It is always strange when Apple approves applications just to delete them later, but that is exactly what the company has done with the admittedly controversial Weed Firm app that allows people to grow their fledgling marijuana business. Weed Firm was approved by Apple for inclusion in the app store and it did not take long for the app to reach the number one spot on Top Free iPhone Apps chart.
From the app’s description:
Follow the story of an expelled botany sophomore Ted Growing as he inherits a growing operation and expands it. Learn to grow weed, plant new varieties to increase your yields, expand your customer base and interact with the characters to become the biggest weed dealer in town. Complete tasks to open new shelves in the store and become a more efficient and prosperous weed grower and seller. Watch out for the thugs and cops. Good luck! May Jah be with You!
The content included in Weed Firm is arguably far less controversial than the content found in other applications, but apparently Apple did not like the fact that it was sitting in the number one spot on one of the most frequently visited areas of the iOS app store.
