Marijuana, also called Mary Jane, belongs to the same family as does the Weed grass. It is a mixture of the dried, shredded leaves and flowers of a mood altering herb called, Cannabis sativa–the hemp plant. It is smoked in various forms, some smoke marijuana in hand-rolled cigarettes called joints; many use pipes, water pipes (sometimes called bongs), or marijuana cigars called blunts (often made by slicing open cigars and replacing some or all of the tobacco with marijuana).
