( CNN) It wasn’t just a swipe to the right that brought these two kindred spirits together — it was a mutual love for cannabis.
One year ago, Chloe Lebbate and Dakota Shyface were single marijuana users in their 20 s, living in Las Vegas and go looking for “something.” But love, friendship and connections sidestepped them on mainstream social networks like Tinder and Match, they said, because the sites failed to weed out people who disapproved of their marijuana use.
“I had given up on dating apps, ” Lebbate said. “I couldn’t find anyone who also smoked weed. It’s something that’s part of me. I use medical marijuana for health ailments, and a lot of people aren’t cool with that.”
Will recreational marijuana soon be legal nationwide?
