    I'm not an Apple user (though I DO have quite a few Beatles records-ha) but I AM a parent. When they were little, there were no smartphones but we had one computer in the living room facing where I would sit and enjoy their experiences WITH them. In this age of "there's an app for that," I don't get why parents don't just install some monitoring apps on the phones then hide them. Of course "Show me your phone" should be a frequent request since younger and younger kids are savvy to the OS and could potentially dl these so-called "bad" apps and hide THEM.
    Summary: Keep the game, more parental responsibility and savvy-say NO to censorship and watch your kids!!

    Taking off a game because "young children go on there"?
    If you are a parent and just let your "young children" download whatever they want and play whatever they see then you probably have bigger problems than Weed Firm.
    No one should depend on Apple's censorship to keep their children safe.
    Can you imagine what would happen if we let idiots like this into all media?
    Think about what the gaming industry would like with this level of censorship. TV. Movies. Even most classic literature would not pass your stupid "young children" Apple censorship test.
    I don't defend the use of weed, but this level of censorship is terrible. Android forever.

    " So, the second most popular game on the iOS App Store is currently “Weed Firm”. Seriously Apple? Young children go on there.

    Seriously, Christine? When will people stop using children as a front for their own agendas???!!! Whenever the do-gooders (busy-bodies) do not like something, they always drag out the "Think of the children!" appeal to emotion. If a cause is important enough for you to object, have the intestinal fortitude, the spine, to say "I'm against it" or "We, who like to meddle in other people's business, do not want them to be able to do sos and so." An appeal to emotions shows that the argument is weak.

    BTW - I am neither codoning nor condeming marijuana use. What I am condeming is the hypocrisy of the do-gooders.
