Because the severity of marijuana possession penalties in North Carolina increases depending on the amount possessed, with threshold levels at 0.5 and 1.5 ounces, knowing exactly how many marijuana cigarettes equal 1 ounce can be important.

An ounce (28.35 grams) typically makes about 60 marijuana cigarettes, or “joints.” But this will, of course, vary depending on the potency of the joint: an ounce could produce as many as 100 joints or as few as 30. On the other hand, a marijuana cigar, or “blunt,” often holds significantly more marijuana than a joint (usually multiple grams per blunt), so an ounce of marijuana used in blunts won’t go nearly as far – probably fewer than 30 blunts.
