Relations of Pubertal Timing and Depressive Symptoms to Substance Use in Early Adolescence.
Wiesner, Margit; Ittel, Angela
Journal of Early Adolescence, v22 n1 p5-23 Feb 2002
Tested three hypotheses concerning effects of pubertal timing on substance use during early adolescence. Findings supported only the stage termination hypothesis. Early maturing boys and girls reported a higher frequency of substance use within the following year after puberty than did the other participants, with the effects being more pronounced for smoking cigarettes than for drinking alcohol.
