I am getting ready to shoot my film and in it I have a character that is a marijuana dealer. I was wondering if anyone knew what was best to use for make marijuana. And if people could please refrain themselves from the obvious sarcastic jokes that would be nice too.

So are you looking for a plant that looks similar?, or something you could dry out and look like it in a baggie?

You can find it in supermarkets under brand: BadiaErnesto Diaz Ruiz

dried parsley, oregano, or sage would do it.

nothing will look like weed, but shake, on the other hand, looks pretty much like oregano, thats your best bet.

If you need something that can be smoked and doesn't taste too bad, there's Honeyrose (and probably plenty of other similar products).
I prefer real tobacco myself, but something like this looks the part (just hasn't got that nicotine hit).
Or for resin, either a stock cube (oxo ?) or compressed dried peat. It looks very much like resin and smoulders convincingly as well. Just don't let anyone smoke it !

If your looking to simulate a live plant, use a False Aralia (sp?)
