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 Wisconsin who used marijuana in the past year is 455,000. Of the 455,000, 76,000 were between the ages of 12 and 17. 186,000 past year marijuana users were of ages 18 to 25 and 192,000 were 26 and older.Total use of marijuana in the past month, according to the same survey, by people ages 12 and older is 245,000. 37,000 were ages 12 to 17, 99,000 were 18-25 and 109,000 were age 26 or older.
The Marijuana Policy Project (MMP) is hoping that the lawmakers in the state of Wisconsin in 2013 will finally protect the terminally ill from being arrested and prosecuted for marijuana use even though they have written documentation from a doctor. They also want to have lawmakers remove jail time for marijuana possession and make it a civil and non-arrestable offense on top of decreasing the racial diverseness in marijuana enforcement and have law enforcement focus on much more violent crimes.
There are several marijuana rehab and treatment centers in Wisconsin that promote the disease theory of addiction to users and teach them that relapsing is a normal part of recovery from drug and alcohol use. This is not a healthy way of thinking. At a non-12 step program, non-treatment program and a cognitive behavioral education based program they have trained instructors that will help you succeed at being substance free and will not demean you in any way.
