Abstract

This report describes a prospective study of social drinking, marihuana smoking, and sexual activity by 26 healthy adult women (mean age 26.8 years). Each subject completed daily questionnaires for 3 consecutive menstrual cycles, and recorded menstrual cycle status, quantities and frequencies of alcohol consumption, marihuana smoking, and sexual activity. Consistent patterns of alcohol consumption, marihuana smoking, and sexual activity were reported across all 3 menstrual cycles. Heavy drinkers (mean greater than or equal to 1.80 drinks per day) were more likely to smoke marihuana than moderate drinkers (mean less than or equal to 1.75 drinks per day) and they also smoked significantly more marihuana (p less than 0.05). Neither age nor frequency of sexual activity were related to patterns of alcohol or marihuana consumption.
