Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women 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.
We’re potheads. We love marijuana. Or at least we did, until it turned on us. It stopped being fun and started being problematic. We would spend huge amounts of money and go to extraordinary lengths to score even a joint. We got in trouble with the law, our friends and family were worried about (or fed up with) us, and we’d often wish that we’d just go to sleep and not wake up to face another day as a slave to marijuana. We’d heard it all before from our friends who smoked and from society: “Marijuana’s just a harmless plant! You can’t get addicted to weed!” But day after day we were faced with the very real problems marijuana was causing in our lives and realized if we were being truly honest with ourselves that we needed to do something about it.
If you’ve been getting high even when you know you don’t want to, if you’ve been trying to hide your stash from yourself, if you’ve been carpet farming or scraping the bowl to get one last hit, if you’ve thrown out your glass again and don’t want to buy any more, if you want nothing more than to stop smoking weed but can’t, if you need help and don’t know where else to turn—we can help. We’ve been there before and we found a solution that works for us. It can work for you too!
If any of the above resonated with you, we invite you to come to one of our meetings, share with us and talk to us who have found a better life in recovery. For more information, helpful literature, and other resources, visit the official Marijuana Anonymous web site.
You are not alone!
