Do Classes of Polysubstance Use in Adolescence Differentiate Growth in Substances Used in the Transition to Young Adulthood?
TLDR
Efforts that only target a single drug type may be missing an important opportunity to reduce the use and subsequent consequences related to the use of multiple substances.
Associations Among Excess Weight Status and Tobacco, Alcohol, and Illicit Drug Use in a Large National Sample of Early Adolescent Youth
TLDR
Findings suggest adolescent health risk behaviors co-occur uniquely for White youth, in particular those who are SO and by early adolescence, as well as for Black or Hispanic youth.
Early Initiation of Substance Use as an Indicator of Problematic Substance Use Among Young Men Who Have Sex with Men (YMSM)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that earlier initiation of substance use is associated with higher risk of substance-related problems among substance-using YMSM and early interventions addressing substance use initiation could benefit this population.

Adolescent Sexual Minority Girls Are at Elevated Risk for Use of Multiple Substances
TLDR
SMGs were at an increased risk for substance use than heterosexual girls, particularly three-substance use, and the disparities remained robust after controlling for internalizing and externalizing symptoms.

Polydrug use in adolescent drinkers with and without DSM-IV alcohol abuse and dependence.
TLDR
The frequency and extent of polydrug use was associated with being older and having higher levels of behavioral undercontrol and negative emotionality, and the use of alcohol and other drugs in combination was reported by a greater percentage of subjects in the alcohol dependence and abuse groups compared with drinkers without an alcohol diagnosis.
Adolescent marijuana and alcohol use: the role of parents and peers revisited.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that adolescent delinquency and drug use are outcomes of disrupted family processes and exposure to deviant peers, and that adolescents who are both antisocial and use drugs may be at higher risk for eventual substance abuse.

TLDR
A program of epidemiological twin‐family research is described that shows that early use of alcohol is best conceptualized as an indicator of a more general propensity to engage in adolescent problem behavior, consistent with a dual‐process model.
Reverse gateways? Frequent cannabis use as a predictor of tobacco initiation and nicotine dependence.
AIMS To examine the risk posed by cannabis use in young people for tobacco use disorders. Specifically we examined whether cannabis use in non-smokers predicted later initiation of tobacco use and
Adolescent cannabis users at 24 years: trajectories to regular weekly use and dependence in young adulthood.
TLDR
Heavy, persistent and early-onset cannabis use were all strongly predictive of later cannabis problems, and occasional use was not free of later problems.
Decline in genetic influence on the co-occurrence of alcohol, marijuana, and nicotine dependence symptoms from age 14 to 29.
TLDR
Heritability analyses revealed that the generalized risk is primarily influenced by genetic factors in adolescence, but nonshared environmental influences increase in importance as substance dependence becomes more specialized in adulthood.
