Be honest ! Is your life & future
going up in smoke?

WAKE UP! - We can help you kick the dope habit ! - It’s never too late to change!

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using marijuana.

   
   

The lies we tell ourselves:

I’m special, dope won’t
damage me, It’s a blessing.

Dope helps me to relax,
be more creative,
concentrate, be spiritual.

Grass is a soft drug, it has
no negative effect on my life
and career.

I’m not an addict, I could
give up at any moment
(just not now).

Grass is natural, a herb,
harmless.

Dope is not addictive
I need dope, It helps me
relax, I can still think clearly.

Just one won’t hurt.

 

Quotes from our Greenway group:

- I have had better “highs” since being
clean and sober than I ever had as an
addict.

- I asked my higher power to remove
this obsession and I felt the need
lifting from me.

- I didn’t believe that any “group”
could help me, I was wrong.

- Since I’ve been in recovery my bad
luck has disappeared.

- I used to fear not having grass in
my life, now I love being sober.

- I felt I was losing my humanity.

- The anger and resentment I felt
was keeping me sick, I have learned
to let go.

What happens at an MA meeting?

People discuss their problems with marijuana, what they did to recover, and what life is like now. We have found that as a group we can achieve for ourselves results which, as individuals, we failed at repeatedly.

Is MA a religious organization?

No, nor is it connected with any religious organization, sect, denomination, politics, institution, or any other organization whatsoever.

Who Are we?

MARIJUANA ANONYMOUS is a fellowship of men and women who share our experience, strength, and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem
and help others to recover from marijuana addiction.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using marijuana.

There are no dues or fees for membership. We are self-supporting through our own contributions.

MA is not affiliated with any religious or secular institution or organization and has no opinion on any outside controversies or causes.

Our primary purpose is to stay free of marijuana and to help the marijuana addict
who still suffers achieve the same freedom. We can do this by practicing our suggested Twelve Steps of recovery and by being guided as a group by our Twelve Traditions.

It’s never too late
to be the person you might have been!

WHO IS A MARIJUANA ADDICT?


We who are marijuana addicts
know the answer to this
question. Marijuana controls
our lives!
We lose interest in all else;
our dreams go up in smoke.
Ours is a progressive illness
often leading us to addictions
to other drugs, including
alcohol. Our lives, our thinking, and our desires center around
marijuana - scoring it,
dealing it, and finding ways
to stay high.


The Twelve Steps
of Marijuana Anonymous:

1. We admitted that we were powerless
over marijuana and that our lives had
become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a Power greater
than ourselves could restore us
to sanity.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and
our lives over to the care of God as
we understood God.

4. Made a searching and fearless moral
inventory of ourselves.

5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to
another human being the exact
nature of our wrongs.

6. Were entirely ready to have God
remove these defects of character.

7. Humbly asked God to remove our
shortcomings.

8. Made a list of all persons we had
harmed, and become willing to
make amends to them all.

9. Made direct amends wherever
possible, except when to do so
would injure them or others.

10.Continued to take personal
inventory and when we were
wrong promptly admitted it.

11. Sought through prayer and
meditation to improve our conscious
contact with God, as we understood,
God, praying only for knowledge of
God’s will for us and the power
to carry that out.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening
as a result of these steps, we tried
to carry this message to marijuana
addicts and to practice these
principles in all our affairs.
