    Stoners looking for that special someone, rejoice: There is a new way to light up connections with others who share a love of weed.

    High There! is a dating app, similar to Tinder, designed especially for marijuana smokers.

    The Denver-based app is available for Android phones in states where use of marijuana is legal, according to its download page in the Google Play store.

    Washington, D.C. approved medical marijuana in 2010, and D.C. voters passed a referendum to decriminalize possession of marijuana in 2014.

    High There! doesn't yet have an iPhone app, though several media reports say one is in the works.

    Similar to Tinder, High There! lets users create profiles and swipe through potential matches. But the app also lets weed-smokers let others know what they like to do when high. A preview on Google Play shows the options to set your "energy level" to "low" if you like to veg out, or to "high" if you want to go for a run after you partake.

    The app also matches people based on their preferences for consuming THC -- vaping vs. smoking, for example.

    "High There! solves the problem many cannabis consumers face in connecting with similar people," according to the app's download page. "Whether looking to connect with new friends, current friends, fellow patients, or simply to find that special someone who understands and supports your choice to consume, High There! helps by giving you a safe place to express yourself."

    CEO Todd Mitchem told Mashable the app is designed for more than just dating.

    "A lot of people say we're the Tinder of weed, but that's only one facet of the whole thing. It's so much bigger," he said.

    Mitchem said the app can help users find recommendations for local medical marijuana dispensaries, or just make friends. (Presumably, friends with some weed.)
