The social psychological antecedents of entry into three sequential stages of adolescent drug use, hard liquor, marihuana, and other illicit drugs, are examined in a cohort of high school students in which the population at risk for initiation into each stage could be clearly specified. The analyses are based on a two-wave panel sample of New York State public secondary students and subsamples of matched adolescent-parent and adolescent-best schoolfriend dyads. Each of four clusters of… 
Early Precursors and Concurrent Correlates of Patterns of Illicit Drug Use in Adolescence
This study examines social, familial and child behavior antecedents of adolescent illicit drug use. The sample studied is a subsample of a follow-up sample of Manhattan children, whose mothers were
Patterns of drug use from adolescence to young adulthood: III. Predictors of progression.
TLDR
Multiple factors are involved in the progression to prescribed drugs, with adolescent depressive symptomatology and use of other illicit drugs important for both sexes, and maternal use of psychoactive drugs, dropping out of school, and prior use of marijuana of additional importance for women.
Developmental variation in the context of marijuana initiation among adolescents.
TLDR
The results suggest that developmental factors do influence the context of marijuana initiation and only measures of peer attachment and exposure and of the relative importance of the costs of use predict initiation for the oldest group.
Adolescent Precursors of Intensity of Marijuana and Other Illicit Drug Use Among Adult Initiators
TLDR
There are both commonalities and differences in precursors of marijuana and other illicit drug-use intensity among initiators of these drugs during early adulthood, and some parent-adolescent relations factors buffered the effects of risk factors.
Effects of the family environment on adolescent substance use, delinquency, and coping styles.
TLDR
While models predicting illicit drug use and the extent of problems related to alcohol and marijuana use fared least well, it was generally found that hostility and lack of warmth on the part of the parents contributed most to these outcomes in subjects.
Initiation into adolescent marijuana use.
TLDR
The results indicate that the domains of personality and family (with control on the other two domains and demographic variables) each appear to be related to subsequent involvement with marijuana.
The role of parents in protecting Colombian adolescents from delinquency and marijuana use.
TLDR
Several risk factors, such as tolerance of deviance and sensation seeking, were similarly related to both delinquency and marijuana use, suggesting that a common cause underlies the propensity to engage in different deviant behaviors.
Developmental changes in peer factors and the influence on marijuana initiation among secondary school students
TLDR
Results showed that respondents perceived greater levels of use among students generally and adolescents in their neighborhoods than among their friends, but when friends' use was perceived, it was strongly related to respondents' own use.
Temporal Influences of Family Structure and Family Risk Factors on Drug Use Initiation in a Multiethnic Sample of Adolescent Boys
This study examines the effects of family structure and family environments on the initiation of illicit drug use among a sample of U.S.- and foreign-born Hispanic/Latino, African American, and White
Peers, parents, and adolescent drug use in a rural community: A two-wave panel study
TLDR
The data analysis revealed that after three years there was greater distance between youths and their parents on the subject of drugs, and that those youths who experienced the greatest movement were also the most heavily involved with drugs.

Sequence and stages in patterns of adolescent drug use.
TLDR
Two prospective longitudinal surveys based on New York State high school students indicate well-defined steps underlying adolescent progression and regression in drug use and the identification of stages in drug behavior has implications regarding the optimum strategy for studying factors that predict, differentiate, or result from drug use.
Stages in adolescent involvement in drug use
Two longitudinal surveys based on random samples of high school students in New York State indicate four stages in the sequence of involvement with drugs: beer or wine, or both; cigarettes or hard
Correlates of Adolescent Marijuana Use as Related to Age, Sex, and Ethnicity
TLDR
Results suggested that two processes, nonconformity to conventional middle class values at both the personality/attitudinal and institutional level, and modeling of familial and peer drug use account in large part for adolescent drug behavior.
ON BECOMING A DRINKER: SOCIAL‐PSYCHOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF AN ADOLESCENT TRANSITION *
TLDR
The course of psychosocial development is often marked by the appearance of certain new behaviors, behaviors not previously part of the individual’s repertoire, which serve to define or lay claim to important changes in status that cumulate in the transition between childhood and adulthood.
Predictors of multiple drug abuse.
TLDR
Early antecedent and concomitant behavioral events significantly associated with "polydrug" use were sought to describe a possible syndrome and were found to predict later polydrug use from among regular marihuana users.
Adolescent Marihuana Use: Role of Parents and Peers
TLDR
Peer and parental influences are synergistic; the highest rates of marihuana usage are observed among adolescents whose parents and friends are drug users, and the data indicate thatdrug use by peers exerts a greater influence than drug use by parents.
Drug use among adolescents and their parents: closing the generation gap in mood modification.
TLDR
Data suggested that adolescents modeled their drug use after parental use and that in order to reduce adolescent use parental use would have to be reduced.
Reaching the hard-to-reach: illicit drug use among high school absentees.
TLDR
Comparison of students in the absentee sample with the total target absentee population, and the reverse association between drug use and selected background factors among absentees, suggest that most chronic absentees and heavy users, especially blacks and males, did not participate in the self-selected absentee sample.
Teenage Drug Use: A Search for Causes and Consequences
TLDR
To evaluate the relationship between early nondrug measures and later use of illicit drugs in data obtained in a fiveyear longitudinal study of teenage drug use, work already completed and reported here does help clarify certain aspects of the psychodynamics of drug use.
The Reliability and Validity of Drug Use Responses in a Large Scale Longitudinal Survey
TLDR
In a survey based on a representative sample of 8,206 New York State public secondary school students, it is found that self-reported Illicit drug use is consistent at one point in time, but less so over time.
