This paper contains the first estimates of the price sensitivity of the prevalence of youth marijuana use. Survey data on marijuana use by high school seniors from the Monitoring the Future Project are combined with data on marijuana prices and potency from the Drug Enforcement Administration Office of Intelligence or Intelligence Division. Our estimates of the price elasticity of annual marijuana participation range from 0.06 to 0.47, while those for thirty day participation range from 0.002 to 0.69. These estimates clearly imply that changes in the real, quality adjusted price of marijuana contributed significantly to the trends in youth marijuana use between 1982 and 1998, particularly during the contraction in use from 1982 to 1992. Similarly, changes in youth perceptions of the harms associated with regular marijuana use had a substantial impact on both the contraction in use during the 1982 though 1992 period and the subsequent expansion in use after 1992. These findings underscore the usefulness of considering price in addition to more traditional determinants in any analysis of marijuana consumption decisions made by youths.

This timely book addresses one of the biggest single problems facing society today--at-risk behavior in one quarter of our nation's youth--and provides strategies for prevention and treatment that can be implemented in the schools, in the homes, and by helping professionals in a variety of settings. Whether the term "at risk" is associated with a local school district's problems with child and adolescent suicide and school dropouts, the correction system's concerns about juvenile delinquency, or the health system's concerns with teen pregnancy, child abuse, and AIDS, the individuals labeled at-risk need the ongoing help of professional--and this book can set the stage.

This publication assembles review papers by leading researchers in the field of youth and drugs, and is intended to provide front-line professionals with an overview of current findings in adolescent development, drug use, assessment, and intervention strategies. The first two chapters address background issues and research findings in the areas of adolescent development and youth substance abuse, covering such topics as health risk behaviours, characteristics of users, and problem-behaviour theory. Legal issues in the assessment and treatment of alcohol and drug problems are explored in depth in chapter 3. Areas covered include principles of consent to treatment, the concepts of confidentiality and privilege, reporting and record-keeping obligations, and the potential criminal liability concerns for professionals that may arise in the course of treating drug users. The final three chapters review identification and assessment methods, along with intervention strategies including family counselling.
