According to studies performed by the Office of Applied Studies, National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2003 and 2004, the total number of people ages 12 and older in the state of Indiana who used marijuana in the past year is 521,000. Of the 521,000, 76,000 were between the ages of 12 and 17. 200,000 past year marijuana users were of ages 18 to 25 and 245,000 were 26 and older. Total use of marijuana in the past month, according to the same survey, by people ages 12 and older is 309,000. 40,000 were ages 12 to 17, 121,000 were 18-25 and 148,000 were age 26 or older.
Marijuana use and laws in Indiana have some of the strictest penalties in the United States. If you are caught with a single joint it is punishable with up to a $5,000 fine and a year in jail. However, it is legal if a person is a registered medicinal marijuana cardholder or a medicinal marijuana dispensary employee acting in the capacity of their job. The person must be qualified and approved by their physician that they have a debilitating medical condition and that marijuana will benefit them by easing their pain and illness.
Marijuana rehab and treatment centers in Indiana tell you that you need to admit that you are an addict in order to stay sober and get help. This is misleading information that is not scientifically proven. There are non-12 step programs that will show you how to live your life substance free.
When in need of Marijuana help you might find that most options available to you in Indiana are basically all the same. All Marijuana treatment centers and rehabs seem to offer a solution that is tied to an endless life filled with meetings and recovery.
