Abstract

The present investigation, conducted between 2005 and 2006, examined the relation between emotion dysregulation and motives for marijuana use among 136 (71 women; M(age) = 20.61 years) young adult marijuana smokers. As expected, after covarying for theoretically relevant variables, the DERS-total score was significantly related to marijuana use coping motives, but no other motives for marijuana use. Further analysis indicated that the Non-acceptance of Emotional Responses subscale of the DERS accounted for the DERS-total score effect. Results are discussed in relation to better understanding the role of coping-motivated marijuana use within the context of an emotional dysregulation explanatory framework. Limitations of the study are noted.
