What Happens At Marijuana Anonymous Meetings?
At marijuana anonymous meetings 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.
All marijuana anonymous meetings are autonomous and formats vary from meeting to meeting. Sometimes there is a speaker. Sometimes we study the Steps or other literature. Sometimes we start with a mindfulness meditation. Many meetings have a topic for discussion.
If you have any questions that go unanswered, you are free to introduce yourself to someone after the meeting and exchange phone numbers to receive support outside of meetings. We are all here to help each other.
Anonymity is the foundation of Marijuana Anonymous and we agree that whatever is said at a meeting is not to leave that meeting.

More About Marijuana Anonymous Meetings
What commitments do I make by attending an MA meeting?
None. There are no records or files kept, and you need not disclose anything about yourself if you don’t want to. No one will bother you if you do not wish to come back.
How much does MA membership cost?
Nothing. There are no dues or fees. MA meetings pay their bills through the voluntary contributions of those attending. A basket is passed at each meeting for contributions. Marijuana Anonymous is completely self-supporting.
Is MA religious?
No, nor is it connected with any religious organisation, sect, denomination, politics, institution, or any other organisation whatsoever.
Is there talk about God?
Most MA members come to believe in the idea of a power greater than themselves. Some call this power God. There is room in MA for all beliefs or no belief at all.
Who are MA members?
Our members are aged eighteen to seventy and represent a wide cross section of society.
Marijuana use among our members range from addicts who did nothing but marijuana, to addicts who did everything possible and could get off everything else but not marijuana.
Needing special meetings aimed at coping with marijuana addiction, they have a refuge among people who know that cannabis addiction is nothing to joke about.
What happens if I meet people I know in MA?
Membership in MA is confidential and anonymous. Whom we see and what we hear in meetings is not mentioned outside of the meetings. People you know whom you see at meetings are there for the same reason you are and will respect your anonymity.
What is Marijuana Anonymous (MA)?
MA is a fellowship of people 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 organisation, 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.
Marijuana Anonymous uses the basic Twelve Steps of Recovery founded by Alcoholics Anonymous, because it has been proven that the Twelve Step Recovery programme works!
