A joint is a rolled Marijuana cigarette. Papers are the most common rolling medium in industrialized countries; however, brown paper, cigarettes with the tobacco removed, beedis with the tobacco removed, receipts, and newspaper can also be used, particularly in developing countries. Modern papers are manufactured in a range of sizes from a wide variety of materials including rice, Hemp, and flax, and are also available in licorice and other flavored varieties.
A joint can vary in size, typically containing between 0.25 to 1 grams net weight of Cannabis (joints have been rolled with 2 or more pounds but this is not a common practice). Tobacco may or may not be used in the rolling process.
