Women and substance use: are women less susceptible to addiction?
The susceptibility of women to alcohol and marijuana addiction is examined using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth. Reduced-form demand equations indicate that the amount consumed by women is greatly influenced by cross-drug effects. Both men and women experience multiple-commodity habit formation but women have higher tolerance to multiple drugs. Research on women's susceptibility to drug addiction should therefore concentrate on multi-commodity drug addictions and multiple drug use.
