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.
Many Wisconsin Marijuana treatment centers will make you believe that the only solution to your problems is in fact Marijuana treatment. This is not true. People overcome Marijuana every day without treatment and without addiction professionals dictating how their lives should be lived.
