Head shops, marijuana paraphernalia retailers, typically carry a wide range of smoking apparatuses and accessories for medical marijuana ranging from basic rolling papers to hand-blown glass water pipes that can be considered works of art.

Typical costs:

  • Rolling papers and blunt wraps (similar to paper used for cigars) are the least expensive smoking accessories, typically costing $1-$3 for booklets of rolling papers or single wraps. Flavored wraps and higher-quality paper may cost more. Simple rolling machines cost about $5-$7. For example. Bambu[1] sells a rolling machine and booklet of papers for $7.
  • Pipes are made of a variety of materials. Metal is typically less expensive than glass pipes. Metal pipes start at about $10. For example, a Proto Pipe costs $30 at 1 Percent[2] , an online head shop. Glass pipes start at about $20 and can reach into the hundreds depending on size and intricacy.
  • Water pipes, or bongs, are popular smoking devices that cool smoke by filtering it through water. Small plastic water pipes start at about $30, while glass water pipes start at about $50. Hand-blown glass is generally more expensive and intricate pieces can cost hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.
  • Vaporizers are a popular choice for medical marijuana users because inhaling vapor is considered healthier than inhaling smoke. Portable vaporizers are typically rechargeable or run on batteries and are less powerful than home versions. Handheld vaporizers generally cost $50-$150. For example, the G Pen sells for $60 from Grenco Science[3] . Vaporizers for home use can cost several hundred dollars for high-quality devices that include digital temperature gauges for reaching the optimal vaporization point. The Volcano Vaporizer sells for $539-$669 for starter sets.

What should be included:
  • Any glass purchases should be wrapped in bubble wrap to protect them from damage.
Additional costs:
  • A recommendation is required to visit a medical marijuana dispensary and protects users from prosecution in the state where the recommendation was issued.
  • A lighter can be purchased for $1-$2. Refillable lighters cost slightly more.
  • Medical marijuana varies in cost depending on quantity purchased. A pre-rolled joint can cost as little as $5-$10; an eighth can cost $20-$60.
Discounts:
  • Prices on marijuana paraphernalia are not always locked. In many cases, it possible to haggle with retailers over a price.
Shopping for medical marijuana paraphernalia:
  • Most states allow for the sale of pipes, water pipes and vaporizers. Florida recently enacted a ban on water pipes[4] , but that doesn't affect online sales. While water pipe sales are legal in most areas, stores do not allow customers to refer to the items as bongs because the ban on sale of drug paraphernalia is strictly enforced.
  • A state-by-state summary of marijuana laws[5] is available through the National Conference of State Legislatures.
  • One retailer, VapeWorld.com, offers tips to help vaporizer shoppers select the right model[6] .
