Smoke buddies are a little clunky, but they’re a cheap and portable option that will help you get rid of marijuana smell. These devices allow you to smoke and blow air into them, leaving your surroundings without odors. You can also make a sploof, which is cheaper and just as effective, only needing some dryer sheets and a cardboard toilet paper roll.
