A rolling machine is a machine that is designed to roll either tobacco or cannabis into individual cigarettes or spliffs for the operator. To roll a spliff (B) with cannabis one must break up the smoking material (C) as well as remove any stems so they won't puncture the paper. Rolling a cigarette with tobacco does not require prep work because the leaf is already shredded.

Once the material is ready one opens up the rolling machine (A) by sliding one of the rollers up and over; this exposes a channel where the material is loaded. Care must be taken to place a uniform amount of product in the channel or the burn rate will change as the cigarette is smoked. When ready the roller is slid back into position and locks into place. The product is cradled and confined in a round space and gets rolled when the user begins to turn one of the rollers.

After a few turns a single sheet of rolling paper is fed into the back of the channel with the side missing the glue going in first. When rolled carefully the paper will make a complete revolution in the channel and will wrap around and under itself. At this point the user licks the glue on the rolling paper and continues to roll the rest of the paper in. When the roller is moved out of position once again a perfectly rolled cigarette is exposed. This process is by some seen as considerably easier than rolling by hand, although many seasoned smokers skilled in rolling by hand alone consider rolling by machine to be an inferior and impractical method. Rolling papers are small sheets or leaves of paper which are sold for rolling ones own cigarettes either by hand or with a rolling machine. ...
