, a smartphone app that's basically Tinder for stoners.
It's always awkward when you meet someone and for the first few dates you're all "huh, what's weed? Selfishly I hope this helps others like me." High There!
However, of the 1,070 people who set themselves a date by which time they planned to stop smoking, just 330 said that they had successfully quit. It means that last year £991 was spent for each smoker who quit – up £150 on the previous year.
When you take into account all those who approached the council about setting a date to quit smoking, each would-be quitter cost taxpayers £306.
You swipe through profiles to find someone to connect with, and once you find a match you can message them with the app's built-in chat.
But before users start swiping they'll need to fill out some basic profile information about how they like to consume weed.
I actually walked out of a date (after paying of course) and said to myself, that's it," CEO Todd Mitchem told the The app takes the Tinder model one step further by actually optimizing possible matches according to consumption preferences.
