About ANLP

A NEW LEAF PUBLICATIONS (ANLP), the publishing arm of Marijuana Anonymous World Services (MAWS), was born out of the need for MAWS to develop and publish literature to help spread the message of MA, and to help the addict who still suffers.

ANLP publishes Life with Hope, A Return to Living Through the 12 Steps and the 12 Traditons of Marijuana Anonymous. Now in its third edition, this softbound basic text fully describes the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions of the program as they relate specifically to marijuana addicts. It is an excellent resource for all marijuana addicts seeking recovery through our proven Twelve Step program.

The stories in this third editon share the experiences of some of our members. These stories speak to the newcomer, to the addict who’s still using, to long-time members, and to anyone interested in some of marijuana addiction’s effects on a person’s life. The stories, and our book, speak to the fact that a “life with hope” is truly possible.

ANLP also publishes Life with Hope 12 Step Workbook. It is intended to be an aid to the Sponsor and Sponsee working through the 12 Steps together, and is typically used in conjunction with reading Life with Hope. Its popularity with MA's sober community is second only to Life with Hope.

Each month ANLP publishes and distributes a newsletter called A New Leaf. The newsletter contains MA member-submitted stories sharing their experience, strength and hope in recovery. It is also a medium through which MA members may have annual sobriety birthdays published. A New Leaf also provides announcements and updates about major MA events and the ongoing work of MAWS service commitees. MA members who do not live near in-person meetings and others find this publication particularly useful.
