Golub, Andrew; Johnson, Bruce D.
American Journal of Public Health, v91 n2 p225-32 Feb 2001
Examined 1979-97 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse data to investigate the probabilities of progression through a sequence of stages of substance use. Progression to marijuana and hard drugs was uncommon in people born before World War II. The stages phenomenon emerged with the baby boom and peaked among people born around 1960. Subsequently, progression risks at each stage declined. (SM)
