A Synthesis of the Relationship of Marijuana Use with Delinquent and Problem Behaviors.
Derzon, James H.; Lipsey, Mark W.
School Psychology International, v20 n1 p57-68 Feb 1999
Summarizes findings of longitudinal study on the relationship between marijuana use and later delinquency and problem behaviors. These studies describe the magnitude of the longitudinal and cross-sectional relationships. Cross-sectional findings measured early in adolescence are strongest. Findings suggest that the nature of the relationship is likely to be one of comorbidity and not cause and effect. (Author/JDM)
