In Pennsylvania, because marijuana possession penalties are more severe if individuals possess more than 30 grams (a little more than an ounce) of marijuana, it can be useful to know exactly how many marijuana cigarettes equal an ounce. An ounce (28.35 grams) typically makes about 60 marijuana cigarettes, also called “joints.” But the real amount will actually depend on the potency of the joints being made – some contain a lot, so an ounce of marijuana will only produce about 30 joints, while others will contain not so much marijuana, so an ounce will produce around 100 joints. On the other hand, a marijuana cigar, or “blunt,” usually holds much more marijuana than a joint (often multiple grams per blunt), so 1 ounce of marijuana will usually produce fewer than 30 blunts. Pennsylvania law does not differentiate between a marijuana cigarette and a cigar.
