Weed Firm: Pot Dealing Game Tops the iTunes Chart Before Removal

So, this is what happens when The Sims get stoned.

There is no way of denying that the world is ready for legal marijuana when the top featured game on the iTunes charts is one that allows players to step inside the simulated shadow of the black market marijuana trade. Either that or everyone just secretly wants to be a pot dealer. Take your pick.

Regardless of the felonious tendencies of the American public, Weed Firm has been building a gar-ganja-uan following since its release for the iPhone in early May. So much, in fact, the game, which takes player on a underworld journey of growing and selling marijuana, paying off gangsters, and getting lap dances with less than desirable strippers, managed to smoke out other popular apps to become Apple’s leading free download before it was removed from iTunes entirely one week later.

In the game, players are challenged to cultivate a single plant and turn it into cash. From there, the goal is expansion: growing a better quality product, additional plants, and ultimately turning your modest cannabis grow operation into a thriving black market empire.

“Follow the story of an expelled botany sophomore Ted Growing as he inherits a growing operation and expands it,” reads the Weed Firm website. “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.”

Interestingly, the Apple Store has been catching some heat for permitting a game involving illegal drug activity, while at the same time rejecting an app focused on female masturbation.

“Masturbation is a legal, private practice in most states, but private, weed exchanges are typically not,” writes Inside Mobile Apps. “This hasn’t prevented iTunes from taking a stand on whether it favors one or the other.”

Reports indicate that Apple initially allowed Weed Firm to be distributed on the iTunes store because the developer added a disclaimer at the beginning of the game that reads, “The creators of this game do not encourage the cultivation or use of cannabis. The plot of this game is solely a work of fiction and should be viewed only as such.”

Incidentally, the fact that Apple has seemingly chose doobies over dildos should be enough proof that marijuana is destined to become a household item in the no so distant future.

    Because the economy exacerbates, and charges surge, it can be very
    hard to meet up one’s basic needs for example food and family costs.

    For example, they may give you a 10 percentage off coupon along with a half off voucher.

    I was on pain pills for 14 years and never got good pain relief. I’m an early retired nurse with 4 back surgeries, Rheumatoid Arthritis, was being treated with insulin for DM, basically I took 17 meds/day plus the 4 accuchecks. I started with sativa 50/50 or better yet 75/25 7-8 weeks ago. I am off ALL of my meds except thyroid. My BS is stable and I half a hell of a lot less pain NOW than I did on the pain pills, AND I’ve lost over 20# in less than 8 weeks! You’ll never convince me that smoke doesn’t have great uses. I refuse to by off the street now. I have CO connections and I want to know what I’m getting! I head Granddaddy purple is pretty great. I’ve had LSD and Sour Diesel. Legalize weed now in all 50 states! If you don’t wanna smoke it, nobody’s forcing you!

    One of Gods finest gifts to man. Not too thrilled having the government highjack another whole industry.

    I believe a novelty shop called Spencers gifts has been selling a card game called “WEED” For at least 33 years. At least they were 33 years ago?
