In Illinois, because penalties for marijuana possession are more severe after 30 grams (a little more than an ounce), it is useful to know exactly how many marijuana cigarettes equal an ounce. One ounce (28.35 grams) typically makes about 60 marijuana cigarettes, or “joints.” However, this amount will vary depending on the potency of the joint. Depending on the amount used per joint, an ounce of marijuana could make as many as 100 cigarettes or as little as 30. On the other hand, marijuana cigars, or blunts, typically hold much more marijuana (often multiple grams per blunt), so an ounce of marijuana will usually produce fewer than 30 blunts. Illinois law does not differentiate between a marijuana cigarette and a cigar.
