In short, a user can perform a search, and if it matches something like a flower in the API, they can view information about this on the App.

I apologize, however I do not understand your legal question. If you would be kind enough to rephrase the question for me I would appreciate it.

In summary, is it legal to monitize an app that deals with Medical Marijuana? I am in California. For example, the user buys this app, and now they can search about the benefits of the different strains of Medical Marijuana using the data from the previous listed website.

I may be missing something in your question. I believe this is an intellectual property question and you are asking the app provider has the legal right to reference other sites. Is that correct?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The IP part is fine. More of a concern that if someone from outside of California downloaded the app where medical marijuana is not legal, could I run into legal issues?

Thank you for the clarification.

If it is just for informational purposes the answer is no you would not have a legal issue.
