My prefix grunts,

my infix can be found on a blunt.

My suffix might be hard,

but you'll find me in a yard.

What am I?


Clarification:

The word "blunt" is used in reference to a marijuana cigarette. In this case, further knowledge of drugs or drug slang is not required. I would suggest focusing on the cigarette aspect of this word.

    $\begingroup$ darn it, I know absolutely nothing about drugs or smoking... Well, I'll try my best. $\endgroup$ – Joe-You-Know Aug 28 '18 at 15:29
  • $\begingroup$ To your edit, technically knowledge of drug slang is required just to understand to word "blunt" as a noun! But not any more given that edit ... how meta. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Aug 28 '18 at 15:29
  • $\begingroup$ @Joe-You-Know - ...you don't need to try drugs to get the puzzle. Just think on it :P $\endgroup$ – BruceWayne Aug 28 '18 at 17:49

Maybe:

Orchard

My prefix grunts,

Orc - I don't think they say much.

my infix is found on a blunt.

Char - You'll find it after the blunt is lit.

My suffix might be hard,

It is hard! That was a sneaky clue.

but you'll find me in a yard.

Orchard - You might not think of them as being in a yard, but if you took the orchard away, you'd see that a yard is what you have left. That's good enough for me!

Are you a

PIGSKIN

My prefix grunts,

Pigs grunt.

my infix is found on a blunt.

A 'skin' (rolling paper) is on a blunt.

My suffix might be hard,

kin — family can be difficult.

but you'll find me in a yard.

A pigskin (football) can often be found in a yard or field.

Alternatively,

PIGGYBACK

But

Pig still works, -ACK is a hard-sounding ending, and 'back' is found in a yard—a backyard! But I can't may the infix work. Gy? Iggy?

Are you a

Garden?

My prefix grunts,

A gar, such as an alligator gar (which actually do make noises. They're actually pretty terrifying. They jump up out of the water).

my infix is found on a blunt.

Gard, as in guard, because most blunt tools have some sort of guard, such as swords.

My suffix might be hard,

A den can be hard to beat, especially a den of thieves.

but you'll find me in a yard.

Gardens are commonly found in yards.

    $\begingroup$ jwi, I'm pretty sure that your suffix implies the opposite of hard! $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 28 '18 at 16:20

Are you a

PIGEON?

My prefix grunts,

PIGs grunt.

my infix is found on a blunt.

I'm not familiar with drug slang (which the OP told me this is). Maybe GEO means something to do with marijuana?

My suffix might be hard,

Hard ON?

but you'll find me in a yard.

Pigeons in the yard!
