Bailey, Susan L.; Hubbard, Robert L.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v20 n3 p339-60 Jun 1991
A longitudinal sample of 3,454 urban and rural school students in grades 6 through 8 at baseline was used to examine developmental changes in peer factors and their influence on marijuana initiation. Friends' drug-related behaviors, rather then attitudes, were more strongly related to respondents' likelihood of initiating drug use. (TJH)
