Why MA?

Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share our experience, strength, and hope with each other so that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from marijuana addiction.

Established in 1989, MA emerged from Alcoholics Anonymous using the 12 Step recovery program to connect people with a desire to stop smoking marijuana.

We figured out how to stop using marijuana, one day at a time.

On this site, you'll find useful information if you live in-and-around Los Angeles and you believe marijuana may be a problem for you and your life. You'll also find useful info for remote meetings and sponsors here, as well.


Providing guidance on health issues is outside the scope of MA. We suggest contacting the CDC, state and local health authorities for appropriate information.

Remember that isolation can threaten recovery. Please reach out to fellows by utilizing the phone list of your home meeting. If you do not have a phone list, please contact your meeting's secretary or GSR, or contact MA District 7 via info.madistrict7@gmail.com.

MA District 7 has video meetings online. We also have some in-person meetings that have opened back up, in accordance with local protocols

Check the MEETINGS page for detailed info & find a group you connect with!
