Edge On The Clock: Google To Ban “Sugar Dating” Apps

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Google’s relationship with so-called “sugar dating” apps has soured. The tech giant updated its Google Play policy to ban such apps. It says starting in September, any app that promotes “compensated sexual relationships” will be prohibited from the Google Play store. “Sugar dating” is when money or gifts are exchanged for companionship.

Plus, the city of Charlotte is seeing an uptick in business development. The Charlotte Observer reports there are plans to open up three marijuana-themed toasted sub restaurants and bars.

And, the pandemic is responsible for a lot of things that happened in the world, including raising a record $936 million for the North Carolina Education Lottery.
