Adolescent Marijuana Use and Adult Occupational Attainment: a Longitudinal Study From Age 18 to 28

Publication Abstract

Schuster, C., Patrick M. O'Malley, Jerald Bachman, Lloyd Johnston, and John E. Schulenberg. 2001. "Adolescent Marijuana Use and Adult Occupational Attainment: a Longitudinal Study From Age 18 to 28." Substance Use & Misuse, 36:997-1014.

This report uses data from a nationally representative longitudinal sample to examine the relationship of marijuana use by high school seniors to occupational attainment 10 years later. Analyses were conducted separately by gender, with and without controlling for other variables. Control variables, all measured when respondents were seniors, were: academic performance, educational aspirations, and occupational aspirations. Results indicate that the influence of marijuana use on occupational attainment is considerably different for males and females.
