Chappin, Sean R.; Brook, Judith S.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v23 n1 p22-36 Feb 2001
A longitudinal study assessed the relationship between Black and Puerto Rican adolescent generational status (since immigration) and psychosocial factors predicting later marijuana use. Interviews with 108 Blacks and 392 Puerto Ricans at ages 14 and 19 indicate that the impact of generational status was mediated by psychosocial variables such as personality, family, peer, and ecological settings.
