Canopy Growth slams Apple for ‘knee-jerk’ App Store ban

Apple’s sweeping ban on vaping-related mobile apps is a “knee-jerk” response to health concerns over e-cigarettes, according to pot giant Canopy Growth. Last month, Apple (AAPL) removed 181 mobile applications related to vaping from its App Store. Software purged by Apple allows users to control lighting, temperature, locks and games on their vape device from their iPhone via bluetooth. Like other cannabis and nicotine vape devices currently on the market, Canopy’s offerings come with an app-based passcode lock to disable the device, and location and temperature controls. “Apps that encourage consumption of tobacco and vape products, illegal drugs, or excessive amounts of alcohol are not permitted on the App Store,” the section reads in part.
