In New York, because the severity of penalties increases when possession of marijuana exceeds 25 grams (a little less than an ounce), it is useful to know exactly how many marijuana cigarettes equal an ounce. An ounce (28.35 grams) on average makes about 60 marijuana cigarettes, also known as “joints.” However, ratios can vary depending on the potency of the joint, so an ounce of marijuana could actually make as many as 100 cigarettes or as little as 30. On the other hand, a marijuana cigar, or “blunt,” typically holds much more marijuana (often multiple grams per blunt), so fewer than 30 blunts will collectively contain 1 ounce of marijuana. New York law does not differentiate between a marijuana cigarette and a cigar.
