MAWS Public Information Committee:

MAWS PI Committee has created a Public Service Announcement (PSA) Subcommittee to work on creating PSA videos to bring awareness to the existence of MA. They are seeking audio recordings from Members. By contributing Members have the opportunity to help reach addicts who are still suffering from their addiction.

The goal is to create three videos that are 3-4 minutes in length. The visual portion will consist of stock footage, content yet to be determined. The audio portion will consist of edited audio clips of MA members answering a specific question for each video:

1. How did you know you had a problem with marijuana?

2. Do you think marijuana is addictive?

3. How has the MA program helped you?

For the Loved-Ones of Marijuana Addicts

Mar-Anon is a separate fellowship for the friends and relatives of marijuana addicts. MAWS is not affiliated with Mar-Anon, but we do cooperate as 'sibling' programs.
