One page flyer with all meeting times

Linked below is a one page PDF file that displays all the current meetings from all the MA phone groups. The flyer can be printed and put up at hospitals, treatment centers, jails, schools, churches, parks, etc. Any place where someone with a marijuana problem might see it.

Thanks to the anonymous members who worked together to make this resource available.

 

Another Doctor’s Opinion (Draft)

The PDF file, Another Doctor’s Opinion, is linked here and below. It has been submitted to the Marijuana Anonymous World Services conference. In May the conference will vote as to whether to include the article in the “approved literature” category.


A MAWS Town Hall meeting will be:

Phone: +1.712.432.1212 Code: 349-225-494#

See linked flyer for more info.


Dear Delegates,

The Literature Committee is pleased to send you the attached draft of Another Doctor’s Opinion, written by Dr. Marvin Seppala, MD, Chief Medical Officer for the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation (he is not a member of MA, so feel free to use his name and affiliation.) This work has been reviewed extensively by the Literature Committee and we feel it is now ready to be presented to the Fellowship.

If the fellowship approves the piece at the MA World Services Conference in May, 2016, it will be submitted to A New Leaf Publications for inclusion in the next printing of Life with Hope.

Dr. Seppala has been invited to speak at the MA World Services Town Hall meeting on Sunday, October 18, and will be available to answer questions.

We invite your comments and suggestions as we move forward with this important project. We encourage you to read it carefully, distribute it widely, discuss it frequently and provide all constructive feedback directly to the Committee at litcom@marijuana-anonymous.org.

Note: As with this email and the attached PDF, while the invitation to the Town Hall has been disseminated via delegates, the conference call itself is not limited to delegates. The more representation from meetings the better. Delegates are encouraged to invite other members, especially in the event that they themselves cannot attend.

Yours in Service,

Carolyn M.

Literature Trustee

Trula authored a 2-part article of the first 90 days of her story for the monthly newsletter, A New Leaf, in the September & October 2014 issues.

All are welcome to come and share.

 

Hybrid Meetings – Face-to-Face & Phone combined

The MA World Phone Meetings group is experimenting with hybrid meetings where an existing land-based face-to-face meeting has a speaker phone in the room so that callers from around the world can call in and participate.

Please considering sharing your experience, strength and hope by calling in. Current hybrid meetings are:

  • Monday @ 8:00 PM EST: Fly into the Light  (Raleigh, North Carolina)

The dial=in number for participating countries can be found here. The USA number is 1.712.775.7035. The access code is: 679941#.

 

2015 Revised Phone Number Service

In an effort to better serve our phone fellowship, especially newcomers, we are editing the Phone Number Exchange portion of our meeting scripts. Both the We Do Recover and the World Phone Meetings groups are participating, though the final form may be different for each group.

The most current version of the Phone Number Service Disclaimer

[ July 28th- needs to be voted on ]

We have found telephone contact with other MA members supportive to maintain sobriety between meetings.

For our phone number service, we ask everyone to be mindful about sharing their phone number in this public space and know that no one is required to give out number.

With this information in mind, any caller may offer their phone number in this public space. However, please do not request phone numbers.

If an early outreach call turns into a request for romance or finance, consider ending contact with that person.  Inappropriate incidents are infrequent, but they have happened.

Gather names and numbers from those who willingly share. We suggest that you listen to people for a few meetings before calling them.

As it states in our book, Life With Hope, “We are [each] responsible for our own recovery” and outreach calls (p. 3).


 

MAWPM PI Flyer

Do you imagine there are marijuana addicts in your area who may benefit from an MA Phone meeting?

Linked below is a flyer for the World Phone Meetings group that you can print (perhaps on green colored paper) and stick to bulletin boards at treatment facilities, jails, hospitals, head shops or where ever else you feel is appropriate. (That said, you should generally seek approval as unapproved flyers often get pulled down rather quickly.)
