Put it Through a Coffee Grinder
While this method does leave the user with a dirty coffee grinder that will need to be thoroughly cleaned before it can be used for its intended purpose, it does work. Coffee grinders can easily grind up marijuana. In fact, because they can hold a good amount of cannabis, they may actually work better for those who are grinding a lot of marijuana at once.
