The present research assesses determinants of teen marijuana use. It uses social learning theory as a conceptual framework to examine the impact of sensation seeking, usage status, interpersonal communication, social networks, and media use on attitudes about marijuana and intention to use among teens. Results show significant main effects and mediation effects for many of these variables. Results are discussed in terms of their contribution to both the literature and future antidrug campaigns.
