Five apps for the stoner and stoner at heart

There's no shortage of what you can find on the app store. Sure, applications like Google Voice have been pulled, but Apple is totally okay with customers using their iPhones for...other hobbies. Come on, free phone calls or the nearest marijuana dispensaries - it's a no-brainer! A quick search through the Lifestyle section (well doesn't that say something) of the iTunes App Store yields a lot of results for the stoner in all of us:

Cannabis ($2.99)
This is a simle geo-location based application that'll help you find the nearest medicinal marijuana, doctors that are pro-marijuana and even attorneys for when the cop that just pulled you over isn't buying "I swear, I have never seen that in my life." If you find yourself in a state that hasn't legalized marijuana (erm, pretty much most of them) the map can tell you where to go to get involved in reform movements.

Crystal Bowl (Free)
An application based on the popular movie, Pineapple Express, this promises to be a "magical" experience. It's basically an eight ball that contains a host of "little nuggets of infinite wisdom" though I'm pretty sure some folks will find them funnier than others.

Just a side note, please remember that possession and/or use of marijuana remains illegal in many states. Always check your local laws and regulations before engaging in any activity like this...after all, there's an app for that!

Stoner Apps

CHRONIC-les ($0.99)
Another gem for the pot smokers out there, this application is designed to help give you a stronger case for society to become pro-marijuana. Containing pre-composed emails to send to friends, family and legislation about why marijuana is so good. It also has a "high-lights" section with tons of information on why pot is good as well as a breakdown of the laws regarding drug use for every state. If you happen to be reading the laws when you're already in jail, they even provide an easy way to get in touch with an attorney.

Herb Converter ($0.99)
Ever been somewhere and thought, "gosh, I wish I knew how to convert this bag of marijuana from ounces to grams." ... haven't we all. This handy app takes care of that for you by providing seven different weight conversions making sure we have just the right amount of ...uhh... herbs.

The Snoop Dog iFizzle Soundboard ($0.99)
What pot list would be complete without a little Snoop Dog? When you search "marijuana" on the app store, this is one of the first results (gee, I wonder why). It offers users over 15 uniquely snoop phrases that's sure to be a crowd pleaser.

The app store has no shortage of applications that can tell you where your closest dispensary is or information on legislation surrounding marijuana use. The one thing most of the applications have in common is they are not trying to make people break the law, but instead are trying to raise awareness and promote positive marijuana values...whatever that means.

Bonus: Don't forget about Grub! on the go, a web app formatted for mobiles. Punch in your address and the munchies you're after (Doritos, beef jerky, whatever) and GOTG will return a list of nearby suppliers. Sweet!
