Welcome to Marijuana Anonymous Ireland

Marijuana Anonymous (MA) is a group of men and women of all ages who have lost the ability to control their marijuana use and have problems that relate directly or indirectly to marijuana use.

In MA, we know what it is like to not be able to stop using, despite pleas from loved ones, and sincere promises we have made to ourselves and others.

We share experience, strength, and hope with each other so that we can recover from our addiction to marijuana, as well as help others to recover.

Our only qualification for helping others is that we have stopped using ourselves. If we can do it, you can do it too!

It is the support that MA members offer each other that is the backbone of our success.

More About Marijuana Anonymous


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.

Our members are aged eighteen to seventy and represent a wide cross section of society.

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!

Is marijuana addictive?

For years, marijuana was thought to be non-addictive. If people became addicted it was either all in their imagination or because there was something really wrong with them. Perception of the drug had swung from the hysterical Reefer Madness mentality of the 1930’s to the belief that it was totally innocuous.

For many of us the truth lies somewhere in between. As is the case with addiction to many other substances, marijuana addiction can be a slow process. Some users never cross from using to abusing to addiction. For those that did become addicts, there was very little help, let alone understanding. And so, because it was needed and its time had come, Marijuana Anonymous began.

Who are MA members?

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 are the physical side effects from stopping marijuana use?

Our page on Detoxing from Cannabis  contains empirical knowledge based on the experiences of many MA members who took the time to fill out extensive questionnaires regarding their own early days of abstinence from their drug of choice. This should answer most of your questions on common physical side effects, and what to expect when you stop using. This is not medical advice.

What is MA’s opinion on the legalisation of marijuana?

The Tenth Tradition of Marijuana Anonymous states:

Marijuana Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the MA name ought never be drawn into public controversy. 

Therefore, MA has no opinion about the legalisation of marijuana.
