Unless you are using a hydroponic setup, a good soil mix is necessary to grow a strong luscious marijuana plant. Soil is there for the plants roots and a good soil mix gives the plant access to both air and water at the perfect amount. What you are looking for is a mix that holds water well and also has the ability to drain out any excess; if the excess water is not drained, your roots will not have access to air. Many garden stores have potting soil or a soilless mix which is great for marijuana. Many soilless mixes are made up of peat moss, vermiculite, and perlite all of which are not very expensive. If you plan to do a soiless mix and buy the ingredients yourself do one of the following: 

A) 1 part peat moss; 1 part perlite
B) 1part peat moss; 1 part perlite; 1 part vermiculite
For either of the above mixes you will need to add a small amount of dolomite lime to balance your PH levels
DO NOT do peat moss on its own; the other ingredients help to create air pockets.
Garden stores will also have pre-packaged PH balanced soilless mixes.
If you go the potting soil route; keep in mind they can come with fertilizer mixed in, this is NOT optimized for growing marijuana; so a fertilizer free mix is what you need. 
Lastly; NEVER bring in soil from an outdoor garden and NEVER use any type of recycled soil mix, this has the potential to introduce disease and ruin any kind of grow, always start with a fresh mix of whatever type of mix you decide.
