how to measure weed with measuring cup

Any way to measure other than a scale?

    Pardon the dumb newbie question, but I’ve searched for an answer without success.

    What does a gram of pot look like? (Or a 1/4 or an oz?)

    I know it probably varies some depending on the type of weed, its moisture content, etc., but is there any *very* general way to estimate if you don’t have a scale and nobody has ever given you a bag and said “this is what an 1/8 looks like”? Would an oz of pot fill, say, fill up one of those paper containers in which they serve a small order of french fries at McDonalds?

    I saw some reference to a graph paper method where, I’m guessing, you crumbled your pot and laid it out on 1/4″ graph paper and that would give you a rough estimate. But it didn’t go into any detail.

    Anyway, I’m a bit embarassed in my “newbiness” — but I had no where else to ask.:8:

    Maybe I just need to buy a scale?

    Beware the ideas you hold — because the ideas you hold, hold you.
