Derzon, James H.; Lipsey, Mark W.
School Psychology International, v20 n1 p69-85 Feb 1999
Analyzes correlates of marijuana use based on 3,690 effect sizes coded from 86 prospective longitudinal studies. Summarizes findings on strength of relationships for categorizing predictor variables, and implications of these relationships. Findings are relevant for intervention programmers and policymakers since they identify characteristics of high-risk individuals. The information can help target intervention on potential mediating variables. (Author/JDM)
