High School Students: Those Who Drink Are More Likely to Vape Marijuana
Researchers, using data from the Monitoring the Future survey, sought to better understand youth prevalence of past 30-day marijuana vaping and its factors that predicted use. Past 30-day prevalence of marijuana vaping was higher among 10th graders, male youth, and those of other ethnicities/races. Students who engaged in current past 30-day alcohol use, cigarette use, binge drinking, and nonmedical use of prescription drugs had significantly greater odds of past 30-day marijuana vaping.
This paper, Past 30-Day Marijuana Vaping: Prevalence and Predictors of Use in a Nationally Representative Study of U.S. Youth, was funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). It was published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
