Grab a filter, also called a crutch, or a thick piece of paper to create one, and you’ve got everything you need to roll a joint.

To make a crutch, fold a piece of thick paper or cardstock into an accordion shape then wrap the last bit of paper around the accordion part.

Position the crutch where you want the mouthpiece to be and sprinkle marijuana onto the paper. Evenly spread the flower throughout the joint and avoid overstuffing it.
