Rolling a joint is sometimes a necessity, but you might not have the right tools for the job. Maybe you are on vacation, and do not have a filter, or you are on the beach late at night and do not have papers. This has happen to many stoners and here are some alternative materials and tricks you can use to roll a joint.
If you do not have a filter you can always improvise with something made out of cardboard. Just rip off a rectangle from a book cover, any box or a cigarette box that you have lying around. You do have to be careful though. Some card boards have paint on them, which can become pretty toxic when smoked. Try to find thin, unpainted cardboard for best results.
If you do not have some papers lying around you are out of luck. However, there are a few alternatives that come close and should be able to give you a decent smoke. The best thing you can use are two cigarettes. Remove the filter and carefully open the cigarette. Then put your weed in one of the cigarettes and put the other one on top. Twist the two cigarette papers together and you should be able to get a decent joint. This does take some experience and, you might not be able to get a decent joint in your first try.
In case you have to break up hash, that is really hard, simply use a lighter to warm it up and make it softer. Just be careful not to get it burning.
Even though a grinder is not a must, you might want to grind your weed a bit quicker than simply using your hands. You can do this by cutting it with a knife. This should quickly give you well grinded and small, easy to roll weed particles.
