Medical Marijuana: Yes, There's an App for That

Apple has approved the imaginatively named
, a new $1.99 iPhone/iPod touch application by Los
Angeles-based Activists Justifying the Natural Agriculture of Ganja
(AJNAG), which operates the
website and database.

Cannabis is designed to help legal marijuana users quickly
locate the nearest medical Cannabis collectives, cooperatives,
doctors, clinics, attorneys, organizations, and other patient services
in the thirteen states that have passed medical marijuana
(Cannabis) legislation: Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii,
Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode
Island, Vermont, and Washington. (California, Colorado, New Mexico, and
Rhode Island are currently the only states authorizing "dispensaries"
to sell medical Cannabis.)

Seven other US states - Illinois, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, New
Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and North Carolina - are currently
considering medical marijuana bills in their state legislatures, and
South Dakota is reviewing several petitions in interest of medical
marijuana legalization.

Cannabis the iPhone
has a map-style interface that displays medical marijuana
resources where legal as well as "coffee shops" in places outside the
US, such as Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where Cannabis can be
legally used.

For every "Cannabis" purchase, will donate 50¢ to a
non-profit Cannabis reform fund, which will be set up once the
application reaches 1000 subscriptions. The non-profit organization
will unite with the many Cannabis organizations to raise money
for grassroots media campaigning. The company's mission is to put the
power of Cannabis change in your pocket while you enjoy "the
most sticky and potent iPhone application available."
