Abstract

This survey of medicinal and drug use patterns among students at two colleges revealed that the majority of functioning students had not become involved in the use of illicit drugs. Those who were taking illicit drugs at the time of the survey represented 17 percent of the sample, and an additional six percent had used them at some time in the past. Students who used drugs described themselves as being moody and unhappy significantly more often than did nonusers. The authors suggest that the drug users may have responded to these self-ratings in terms of quite different norms from those of their classmates, however.
