Aims - This study aimed to examine the associations between cannabis use and work commitment
Design - We used a 25-year panel survey initiated in 1985 with follow-ups in 1987, 1989, 1993, 2003 and 2010. Registered data from a range of public registers were matched with individual responses for the entire period.
Setting - The panel survey was a nation-wide study set in Norway.
Participants - A total of 1997 respondents born between 1965 and 1968 were included in the panel.
Measurements - Work involvement scale (WIS) was used to assess work commitment. Involvement with cannabis was based on self-reported smoking of cannabis within the last 12 months and exposure to cannabis through friends. This information was categorized into 'abstaining', 'exposed', 'experimented' and 'involved'. Control measures included socio-economic background, mental health (HSCL-10), education, work satisfaction, unemployment, receipt of social assistance, consumption of alcohol, alcohol-related problems and use of other illicit drugs.
Findings - The level of work commitment was associated with involvement with cannabis. In 1993, when the respondents were in their mid-20s, those who were involved or had experimented with cannabis displayed lower levels of work commitment than those who were abstaining or merely exposed to cannabis through friends (P Conclusions - In Norway the use of cannabis is associated with a reduction in work commitment among adults.
The use of cannabis is linked to a reduction in work commitment among adults in Norway.
