MA World Phone Meetings Group (MAWPM) Announcements
In an effort to have more time for sharing, the MAWPM group has left a breif mention of current announcements and we’ve built this page for a longer announcement, sometimes an additional post to provide as much information as possible.
The Business Meeting
The MAWPM group has its monthly Business Meeting, which is informed by the Group Conscience, on the the 2nd Sunday of the month after the noon EST Meeting. To add new items, please use the “Agenda Item” form available on the “Business Meeting” menu or send email To: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visit the website http://ma-phone.org/gc-minutes-mawpm/ to review the agenda prior to the business meeting if possible.
Please know there are many Marijuana Anonymous phone meetings available. We, the MAWPM group, meet in this teleconference 712.775.7035 access code 679942# 7 days a week at 7 am, noon and 8 pm US Eastern timezone. Also on Friday, we have a 10 pm meeting that welcomes the LGBTQ community and friends.
All meetings are open, and all are welcome. Across the three MA phone meeting groups, the variety of meeting formats includes women’s only meetings (Women in Recovery, Sun & Wed at 7 pm EST, Tues at 10 pm EST), a guided-meditation meeting (We Do Recover, Sun at 3 pm EST), a people of color meeting (WDR, Thurs at 10 am EST), an LGBTQ meeting (details above), and some late night meetings (Tues (WIR), Thurs (WDR), Fri (MAWPM), and Sat (WDR) – all 10 pm EST).
Information on all the phone meetings, as well as in-person and online meetings, is available at marijuana-anonymous.org (the official website for Marijuana Anonymous World Services) or ma-phone.org for information specific to each phone group. There is also a 24/7 chat room at ma-online.org.
Please check out all the “free” resources available on these websites.
Service keeps me sober.
Service is how it works at the group level and personally service is Step Twelve in action. When you have at least 45 days weed free please consider doing service by chairing a MAWPM meeting. The “original” phone meeting, the We Do Recover set of meetings requires 60 days free of marijuana, alcohol and all mind & mood altering chemicals.
Speak with the MAWPM Chairperson Coordinator, or a current chair to get started chairing a meeting. The Chairperson Coordinator receives email
at: email@example.com. This address can also be found on the website by selecting “Contact Us” below the “Home” menu.
Support for Friends and Family
There is also the website mar-anon.com which offers hope for those affected by another person’s marijuana use. Mar-anon is a separate organization from Marijuana Anonymous.
Marijuana Anonymous App
Keep track of your day count, access our basic text A Life with Hope and the workbook, find meetings near you or on the phone, and use tools like the 10th Step Daily Inventory with the Marijuana Anonymous app.
Available at Google Play and the App Store. (Just don’t click on any of those other apps that pop up – no seriously, don’t do it. This is your trigger warning. Be safe.)

MA Pen Pal Opportunity
MA World Services is developing a pen pal program that will involve MA members, with a year or more sobriety, being paired with an inmate who needs to share experience, strength & hope. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
At last contact, the pen pal program was struggling with accessing facilities, so if this is something you would like to help out with, please email the H&I committee to see what they need.
Book of Daily Meditations
MA World Services is also developing a book of Daily Meditations and they need more submissions. Learn how you can contribute by browsing to marijuana-anonymous.org and finding the instructions and submission form at the bottom of the Literature menu. More information is needed from the MAWS Literature committee as to the status of this project.
