No More Easy Marijuana For Android Users As Google Bans Weed Selling Apps

Regardless of legality, Google has decided to ban all marijuana delivery apps from its app store.

Google Bans Weed Selling Apps

Is it time to say goodbye to shopping carts for Marijuana? 

Let's find out! 

Alphabet’s Google has announced a ban on apps on its app store that facilitates the sale of marijuana or other related products. This ban is implemented as a change in the content policy of Google Play Store.

Note: In order to not miss any regular updates from the app store, make sure to keep your Google Play Store updated to the most recent version. 

According to The Verge, Google stated that these changes are less sweeping than what the language suggests. A spokesperson further added,

The tech giant is also claiming to be working with app developers to prevent any sort of customer disruption that can be caused by this ban. As per the policy, the existing apps would have a time period of 30 days post-launch to comply.

As mentioned earlier, there's a way out! As per the official statement released by a Google spokesperson, app developers only need to relocate their shopping cart functionality out of their mobile app. This minor change will ensure that weed selling apps comply with the newly changed policy. 

A spokesperson for Eaze, one of the reputable in-app weed ordering service providers, said in a statement,

It seems like Google is revising its policies to keep up with the standards set by the iOS App Store. For instance, Apple’s App Store has already banned apps that facilitate the sale of substances related to marijuana, tobacco, or any other controlled drugs. But Google will still allow the promotion of pot, while restricting the in-app shopping cart feature.
