High There

  

App Review – High There
Threat Level – Very High


Just when you thought it was safe to get back on the app store. I am now a believer, as you should as well that when it comes to social connection in an app, there are many things that tie people together. Whether it be a hobby or a similar interest that is what social networking is about. But what if that similar interest was something illegal. Would you want your child to be exposed to it? Would you want your child being connected to others that are exposed to it?


The app is called High There and created by the company Bon vert, Inc. Just as you are probably already thinking from the name of the app about what it is about, you can assure yourself now that you are correct. This app is called High there .. yes ‘High’ as a reference to being High on drugs. Marijuana to be specific. The app wants you interact and join the worldwide users of marijuana to make new smoking circles. Of course it says for adults, but kids know about this app as well, hence me talking about it.  


This app is described to be a social media app for Marijuana enthusiasts. The company has created this social network as a way to expand your smoking circle and to make new friends that enjoy smoking marijuana. When you create your account you set your consumption, mood and energy preferences and then you are ready to connect with others. The look and feel is a mix of instagram style app. This app allows you to search and connect with others that enjoy marijuana. Through the app, you can see how far away the user is from you, see their photos posted and also connect with them one on one in a private chat. There is a way to search the trending hashtags that are advertised as #homegrown, #greenmile, #dopeaf and many more. They are clever in their play on words as well offering Daily Joints and encouraging you to ‘roll” your own daily joints by tapping the leaf.  


They do stress that the app is not a place to post pictures of cannabis or consumption of cannabis instead they encourage profile photos that are of the user as a person in culture, and as someone to connect with. But, with that being said. I don’t want my kid having any access to an app that promotes the use of an illegal narcotic. I also do not want them connecting to others that use illegal narcotics. Be diligent in watching the download que for this app. Parents should not want their children being exposed to anything illegal.

  1. I get your concerns, but please keep in mind… cannabis is not illegal everywhere!! This app is primarily for adults living in states where recreational is legal, and for medical marijuana users. Its also not a narcotic, and many studies have been done regarding the safety of the drug (and many more will come).
    I dont think the government would willingly legalize something that was very dangerous.

    I understand your concerns, because I certainly would not condone consuming cannabis before your brain is fully developed. I certainly wouldn’t let my kids do that!
    But for those of us who are old enough, consume cannabis legally, and very often use it to better cope with health issues… we need an app for that too.

    • Thanks for your comment. Remember my app reviews are based on child safety. If you read my reviews, that is what I am basing it off of. Just like dating apps. Some of the reviews I give for dating apps would be great dating apps for adults. But not children.
