Description

This study investigates the relationship between impulsivity and alcohol and cannabis use among college students. 168 undergraduate students completed a computerized version of the Iowa Gambling Task (IGT) as well as a paper questionnaire including the Barratt Impulsivity Scale (BIS), Alcohol Use Questionnaire, and the Adult Cannabis Problems Questionnaire. We hypothesize that 1) students with more frequent alcohol use and more problematic cannabis use will exhibit higher levels of impulsivity and will be more likely to pick disadvantageous cards in the IGT 2) students who are more problematic cannabis users will show more frequent alcohol use, and 3) impulsivity will increase as years in school increase for those who exhibit more frequent alcohol and cannabis use.
