A man who rolls joints for a living is proving the old adage of “do what you love and the money will follow.”
Tony Greenhand, 26, of Albany, Oregon, told Vocativ he’s “considered one of the best joint-rollers in the world.” His biggest order yet was for $7,000 to make a set of small joints that looked like weapons, including a fully smokeable AK-47 spliff he made from rolling papers and a half-pound of weed.
“I basically jump out of bed and start rolling joints,” he told Vocativ.
But Greenhand didn’t come out of the womb a Monet of marijuana. His first joint, which he rolled as a teen while growing up in rural Washington state, was hideously deformed thanks to too much saliva on the rolling papers.
“I was essentially, at my core, humiliated,” he said. “I bounced back though.”
Greenhand shares some of his best work on Instagram ― including an awesome Pikachu joint.
He sees a bright green future for his artistic endeavors, which include a dream of making a joint showing Mike Tyson eating an avocado.
“Maybe I want to make a 10-pound joint next, OK? Or maybe I’ll make one that weighs 15 pounds,” he said. “It’s going to get smoked either way. And I bet I can smoke it faster than you can find out about it.”
