Service

Step 12: "Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to marijuana addicts and to practice these principles in all our affairs."

Open Service Positions in District 20:

  • At our September 12 district meeting (the No Pot Potluck), we will be electing a new chair, vice chair, secretary, and treasurer to District 20. The Chips & Literature Commitment will also be available in September.

  • The Monday Weedless Warriors meeting is looking for a new Secretary. If you are interested please attend the meeting and speak up before or after.

  • The Weedless Wednesday, Thursday Up In Smoke, and Friday Let's Be BUDS meetings are all in need of GSRs.

  • The Weedless Wednesday, Let’s Be BUDS on Friday, and Stonefree Saturday meetings are in need of permanent tech-hosts, responsible for screen sharing and Zoom security.

  • District 20 San Diego is officially hosting the 2022 MA Convention! If you would like to help out the Convention Planning Subcommittee our next meeting is 7/18 at 5pm PDT. Please email convention@ma-sandiego.org for Zoom info.

  • The Public Information and Hospitals & Institutions (PI/HI) committee is looking for members to be of service. We will be cold calling local rehabs and other institutions and sharing the resources we have available. Email pihi@ma-sandiego.org for info.

ASL Interpreter Needed

  • An American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter is sometimes needed to help hearing-impaired MA members understand what is being said in online (video) meetings by signing spoken word into ASL, while maintaining anonymity. It is important that the interpreter sign the spoken word and speak the sign language accurately, without omissions or additions, maintaining message content, context, and style as much as possible. It would be helpful that the interpreter have knowledge of Marijuana Anonymous and other 12-Step specific terminology (training can be provided). If you, or someone you know, could help fulfill this task, please e-mail office@marijuana-anonymous.org. Thanks!

Correspondence Committee

  • In August alone, this group of volunteers handled 122 requests (33 e-mails, 43 phone calls, and 48 text messages). If this sounds like something you'd like to get involved with, reach out to Jules M. at correspondence@marijuana-anonymous.org.

H&I Committee at the World Services Level

  • The Hospitals & Institutions Committee would like participation from MA members on virtual panels at facilities. If you feel you have related experience, strength, and hope that could be useful to potential new members, please e-mail hospitalsandinstitutions@marijuana-anonymous.org with your interest. We would especially like to hear from you if you have served any length of time in a prison, received help at an in-patient mental health facility, or if you have previously volunteered as an MA member in a hospital or institution.

MA District 20 is a recognized district of Marijuana Anonymous World Services representing San Diego County. Marijuana Anonymous operates and has service opportunities at the Meeting Level, District Level, and World Service Level. Here is a Breakdown of the Service Levels.
