    Is Cannabis Use Associated with Various Indices of Motivation Among Adolescents?


    Decreased motivation is often noted as a consequence of cannabis use (CU).

    Previous work has yielded mixed findings, relied mostly on adult samples,

    and varied to the extent that it accounted for potential confounds.

    This study examines associations between CU and several motivation indices among adolescents.

    We hypothesized that regular cannabis users would report lower motivation than light users,

    and that greater lifetime and past 30-day CU amounts would be associated with decreased motivation.

    Participants were 79 adolescents, ages 14-18, classified as recent regular cannabis users

    (n = 36) or light users (n = 43).

    Frequency and amount of substance use were assessed across participants' lifetime and during the past 30 days.

    Motivation was measured through the Apathy Evaluation Scale and Motivation and Engagement Scale.

    To examine associations between CU and our motivation indices,

    we conducted a series of two-step hierarchical multiple regressions.

    Variables found to correlate with any motivation measure were entered on step 1

    (e.g., mental health, other substance use) and the relevant CU variable was entered on step 2.

    controlling for confounds, no significant differences were observed between

    regular and light users on any motivation index, p > .01.

    Similarly, no associations between motivation and lifetime or past 30-day CU

    amount were observed, p > .01.

    Our findings do not support a link between reduced motivation and CU among adolescents

    after controlling for relevant confounds.

    Future studies will examine the levels of CU which influence motivation in adolescents,

    and the conditions under which this link becomes manifest.

    The world is hectic. few 14-18 year old kids a truly guided on the madness they are about to enter when they become adults. Theres so many perceived choices, if the worst they are doing is chiling out smoking a few bowls getting their minds right. Im all for it. I was unmotivated at 14-18 for sure. Good read man

    "Participants were 79 adolescents, ages 14-18, classified as recent regular cannabis users (n = 36) or light users (n = 43)."

    so about 50% are illegals...immature..dysfunctional's ..? pity

    a better result may have been obtained raising the age past puberty 20-25yo ...?
