Roll a Joint
With medical marijuana just around the corner, many Arizonans will be able to legally possess and use weed (if they obtain registered patient or caregiver cards). No doubt some of the new patients will be old fans of the herb, but there may be other medical marijuana patients who are new to the "icky sticky" and may need some guidance -- where to buy weed, what strains to try, how to grow, etc.
But it's also important to know the most basic of stoner skills -- how to roll a joint.
Whether someone's smoking ganja alone for medical reasons or with a group for recreation, nobody likes a joint that bulges in the middle and tapers on both ends (known as a "pregnant joint").
Here then, is a step-by-step guide to how to roll a joint ...
Joint rolling supplies: papers, filter, and chronic basil.
Step 2: Place the filter (or the tip of your finger) in one side of the paper.
Spread the marijuana (or basil or whatever) evenly across the paper.
(If you roll too many times, the joint could be too "tight" and hard to hit).
Fold the rolling paper under on one side, then lick the gummy side and fold it over the paper. Voila! You have a joint (or in our case, a basil cigarette).
