Welte, John W.; Barnes, Grace M.
Journal of Adolescence, v10 n4 p327-40 Dec 1987
Examined smoking patterns in 27,335 junior and senior high school students. Found smoking was more prevalent among girls than boys, and among whites more than members of minority groups. Marijuana use was the best single predictor of whether a student smoked or not. Heavy drinking was the best predictor of quantity smoked among smokers. (Author/KS)
