For sample persons ages 18-44, MJPROBUSYP is a recoded variable that reports if, in the past 12 months, the person ever continued to use marijuana even though it caused her/him any problems. This recoded variable is based on survey questions that ask the person about marijuana causing a problem in the past 12 months with work, school, the police, her/his family or friends, or caused her/him to feel depressed, anxious, or uninterested in things. Persons who reported never using marijuana or last using marijuana over 12 months ago in previous questions were recorded as responding "no".
This variable is part of a series of questions on drug and alcohol use. Sample persons filled this survey supplement out themselves because of the potentially personal nature of the questions included in the supplement. The interviewer was available to provide assistance if requested. The supplement includes detailed questions about cocaine (COKABUSEYR), marijuana (MJABUSEYR), and general questions about use of hallucinogens, inhalants, heroin, painkillers, sedatives, stimulants, and tranquilizers.
