The Effects of Schooling and Cognitive Ability on Smoking and Marijuana Use by Young Adults.
Economics of Education Review, v17 n3 p317-24 Jun 1998
Estimates effects of schooling, cognitive ability, and time preference on the probability that young adults smoke cigarettes or use marijuana, using data from the "High School and Beyond 1980 Study." Results show that all three variables affect the likelihood of smoking. Schooling and time preference have modest effects on using marijuana when past consumption is not taken into account.
