The 12 Traditions Of Marijuana Anonymous
- Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon M.A. unity.
- For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority, a loving God whose expression may come through in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.
- The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using marijuana.
- Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or M.A. as a whole.
- Each group has but one primary purpose, to carry its message to the marijuana addict who still suffers.
- M.A. groups ought never endorse, finance, or lend the M.A. name to any related facility or outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property, and prestige divert us from our primary purpose.
- Every M.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
- Marijuana Anonymous should remain forever nonprofessional, but our service centers may employ special workers.
- M.A., as such, ought never be organized, but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.
- Marijuana Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the M.A. name ought never be drawn into public controversy.
- Our public relations policy is based upon attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, t.v., film, and other public media. We need guard with special care the anonymity of all fellow M.A. members.
- Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.
Tradition 2. For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority, a loving God whose expression may come through in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.
