Abstract

A random sample of 169 graduate students revealed that 95 percent used alcohol, 31 percent used marijuana, 17 percent used amphetamines, and four percent used LSD. Details of marijuana use are presented. Marijuana users and nonusers differed significantly in background, attitudes, and risk taking; nonusers were less willing to achieve certain preferred mental states with a drug, even one perceived to be risk-free. This study supports the authors' previous findings regarding drug use among undergraduates.
