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  60 days weed free please consider doing service by chairing a MAWPM meeting. 


Speak with the MAWPM Chairperson Coordinator, or a current chair to get started chairing a meeting. The Chairperson Coordinator receives email at: cc-mawpm@ma-phone.org

4:20 Fellowship

 Sometimes people gather on the MAWPM phone line at 4:20 EST for fellowship. Stop by if you’d like for unstructured conversation. If you connect at 4:20, please stay on the line for at least 5 minutes to increase the chance of connecting with others. 

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 Publications

"On September 21, 2019, Marijuana Anonymous World Services entered an agreement licensing Hazelden Publishing to publish and distribute current and future English-language editions of the Life with Hope (LwH) book and workbook. All books, workbooks, the A New Leaf newsletter and other service materials may still be ordered from MA’s A New Leaf Publications website, www.anewleafpublications.org, but orders for the LwH book and workbook (only) will be redirected to the Hazelden website for payment, fulfillment and shipping by Hazelden. 


Pricing for the current 3rd edition of the LwH book and the current 1st edition of the workbook remains the same. Under the agreement, Hazelden has also been authorized to produce new re-designed editions of both the book and the workbook, anticipated for release in April 2020.


This is exciting news for our fellowship! And, it is a much anticipated aid in meeting our “primary purpose” under Tradition Five - “to carry its message to the marijuana addict who still suffers”.  It is envisioned that the agreement will not only provide both greater exposure of MA literature through Hazelden’s extensive marketing network, but also provide greater income to MA from sales of Life with Hope. "

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 hospitalsandinstitutions@marijuana-anonymous.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

Marijuana Anonymous has a subcommittee working a book of Daily Reflections. They need more submissions.
