Marijuana contains a larger number of cancer-causing chemicals in greater amounts than tobacco contains. Although attitudes appear to be predictive of certain types of illicit drug use (e.g., Akers, Krohn, Lanza-Kaduce, & Radosevich, ), few studies have examined whether this prediction is as strong as the prediction of attitudes by drug use.

Firstly, the level of both basic knowledge on cannabis and knowledge on specific cannabis uses, as well as sources of knowledge on cannabis, should be studied.

Moreover, the knowledge on side effects and risk perception, as well as attitude toward medical cannabis, should be evaluated. Currently, there is a limited number of such : M.

Drozd, J. Sobczyński. Peer influence is regarded as one of the strongest determinants of juvenile delinquency and particularly adolescent substance use. A commonly held view is that social pressure from friends to use drugs and alcohol is a major contributor to substance use.
