Substance Use Problems Reported by Historically Black College Students: Combined Marijuana and Alcohol Use Versus Alcohol Alone
Journal of Psychoactive Drugs
Using secondary data analysis, this study compares alcohol and other drug (AOD) problems experienced by African-American students attending a historically Black university who use alcohol only versus those who use alcohol plus marijuana. Results indicate that students who used marijuana plus alcohol experienced more AOD problems than their counterparts who used alcohol only. The current findings are similar to previous research with a majority White college student population.
