An entirely different approach, which utilized a Diels-Alder reaction on an
appropriately substituted cinnamic acid derivative(Chart 1 it tends to reduce desire and to dull the sexual areas. Norman Taylor, a
botanist, writes, "As to being a sex-excitant, marijuana appears to be just the
opposite."18 Constantinos Miras, a Greek pharmacologist and one of the drug's severest
critics, disclosed to a seminar at the UCLA Department of Pharmacology that marijuana
actually impairs sexuality, and when administered to rats, their rate of "reproductive
activity" declined go percent.19 If, physiologically, marijuana is neutral—or even
negative—to sexuality, why are so many people sexually turned on by it? Why, after
smoking the faddish banana, don't its users descend from a trial high to discover that it is
neutral to sex desire and enjoyment?
Consider the mythology. Its use has traditionally been associated with the dramatic loss
of sexual inhibition, and with what were thought to be the inevitable consequences:
depravity, degradation, shame. Marijuana, according to an historic description, completely
inflames the erotic impulses and leads to revolting sex crimes. For years, propaganda from
the press assisted the Federal Bureau of Narcotics' campaign to nurture an evil image. An
account written in the 1930s chronicles the degradation of a young girl lured into
Her will power dropped away from her like a rent garment, leaving her a
tractable, pliant creature, as exposed to chance suggestion as if her soul had
been naked to the wind.20
The unfortunate girl so discarded her inhibitions that she accepted proposals from
strangers. When she came to her senses, she was so mortified that she committed suicide.
The sex-loaded invectives of the antimarijuana campaign may have been a tactical
blunder. They seem to have attracted more recruits than they discouraged. Sociologists
and psychologists stress the power of mood, expectation, social conditioning, setting, and
myth in shaping the nature of the drug experience. And our mood, expectations, social
conditioning, setting and myths have long associated marijuana with sex. We have learned
to associate it with sensuousness and carnality, with hedonism and physical gratification.
And so it stimulates those very reactions which are called debauchery by its critics and
rapture by its adherents.
The human, unlike the caged rat, has a broad latitude in shaping the nature of his
environment, even of his own body chemistry. Man's somatic responses are often
influenced more by what he thinks than by biological and chemical imperatives; in fact, it
can happen that what he thinks actually becomes his biological and chemical imperative.

he smokes it. It is only in the narrowest sense that the drug is not a sexual stimulant; that

Chapter 4. One Hundred and Fifty Experienced Marijuana Users
APPROXlMATELY 750 QUESTIONNAIRES were sent out. Of those returned by the cutoff date several months
later, three were rejected because of high scores on the validity scale, as explained earlier, and several others were
rejected because the respondent indicated that he had been intoxicated with marijuana while he was filling out the
questionnaire. A number of partially completed questionnaires were also returned with notes that they were just
too long for the user to complete. Verbal comments by students around campus also indicated that the primary
reason they had not completed the questionnaire was its length. One hundred and fifty usable questionnaires were
left. Thus the 150 respondent users are a verbal lot, sufficiently motivated to help science that they would fill out a
As the data below will indicate, this is primarily a young, student population. How representative it is of any
other specific population is unknown.1 As the primary purpose of the present study was to discover the major
experiential effects of marijuana intoxication, to study the effects of some important background variables, and to
specify the range of phenomena, rather than produce exact figures for a specified population, this lack of
knowledge about the generality of the present sample is not a serious drawback. Again, however, the reader should
be cautioned against overgeneralizing the exact figures presented later.
Some further comments should be made about generalization of the effects in this study to other populations. In
terms of the model for drug intoxication effects presented earlier, it is clear that the intellectual level, social
learnings and expectations, and values of a given population may strongly affect what they will experienc , 58 (1946) ly in
very small quantities. Over a third of those who had sold (36 percent) reported that they
most commonly sold in ounces, and about 5 percent said that selling in quantities of a
pound or more was usual. The typical seller sold a median of eight times in an average
quantity of two ounces.
However, far more important than the mere incidence of selling —since our sample is
not "representative"—is the systematic variation in selling according to certain key
variables. The most important variable influencing whether the smoker sold or not is how
much he uses: the more one smokes, the greater is the likelihood that he sold. Among our
respondents, the relationship between these two variables could hardly have been more
striking (see Table 10-1).

The logistics of continued heavy use implies, and even demands, selling. The heavy
marijuana user invariably keeps a supply, and many only occasional smokers do as well.
The more that one smokes, the greater is the likelihood that one will have a supply. Not

a All other replies aside from "yes" and "no" eliminated from table.
It is characteristically the case that even heavy marijuana smokers will not be able to
use up, within a brief space of time, the quantities that they purchase. Often a sale will be
on a basis of "take it or leave it." An available quantity might be an ounce, in which case
none of it will be sold, or a pound, or a kilogram, in which case most of it will be sold.

The Marijuana Smokers - Chapter 10
The only way the marijuana user can limit his transactions and his exposure to arrest is to
purchase large amounts. By buying a pound at the near-wholesale price of $120, and
selling twelve ounces to twelve friends at ten dollars for each ounce, one thereby has four
ounces free. "Free grass" is an inducement for selling.
On the surface, the parallel with the heroin addict might seem striking: each sells to
support the habit, getting nothing else out of it. Yet, even if the marijuana seller smokes
five joints a day, an enormous quantity, he would consume a pound every six months,
which means that his habit costs about fifty cents a day, at the most. We are forced,
therefore, to discard the "support the habit" expl Presently three such drugs

attitudinal shifts generally take place relative to drug use and drug-associated identities.
The more that one smokes, the greater the likelihood that he will see himself as a
marijuana smoker and the higher that drug-connected identities will rank on his "who am
I?" responses. The more that one will look for drug cues in others, the more he will think
of others in drug-associated terms; also the more one will think it necessary that others
with whom he associates smoke. The more that one smokes, the greater the salience that
marijuana has in his life. (The evidence for this assertion is presented in Table 8-3.)

It is impossible at this point to draw causal arrows. We must rather, think of the
relationship between our variables in dialectical terms. One variable, the amount of
marijuana smoked, influences a person's conception of himself as a smoker which, in turn,
also influences how much he smokes. The simple cause and effect model is inadequate
here. All of the factors form a kind of configuration. The amount a person smokes is
easily quantifiable, but it is itself a partial consequence of other factors. To attempt to
separate a strand does violence to the whole.
Moreover, the more an individual smokes marijuana, the greater is the likelihood that
he will also be involved in drug-related activities which further strengthen his social ties
to the drug-using group. For instance, the more he smokes, the greater the chances of his
having bought and/or sold marijuana. The more he smokes, the greater the need to
purchase marijuana; the more he smokes, the greater is the chance of being able to take

advantage of the economy in large purchases, and the greater the likelihood of having a
surplus to sell; the more he smokes, the more he associates with others who smoke,
especially heavily, and thus the more centrally located he is in the marijuana distribution
system, and the more knowledge he has about buying and selling.
But the arrows move in both directions. The more he buys and sells, the greater the
number and the intensity of his personal acquaintances in the marijuana network, and the
more reinforced will be his marijuana-related activities, including smoking; the more that
he buys and sells, the more marijuana there will be around— the greate

Every marijuana user is not only a marijuana user, he is invariably also a friend, and his
friends also smoke. There is a positive and linear relation between the amount one smokes
and the percentage of one's friends who also smoke (see Table 10-3).

This would create, therefore, a certain amount of pressure to sell. The more that one
smokes marijuana, the higher the proportion of one's friends who are marijuana smokers;
the higher the proportion of one's friends who are marijuana smokers, the greater is the
probability that they will buy and sell from one another, particularly as their turnover in
supply is so much greater (see Table 10-4).

Moreover, not only is a higher proportion of the heavy smoker's friendship network
more likely to smoke, but he is also more likely to have access to information concerning
the availability of periodically appearing quantities of marijuana on the market. He is
more likely to know others who buy and sell and who are higher up in the distribution
ladder. He is more acquainted with the price system, which fluctuates even in the short
run. He knows more about some of the rules and precautions to take to avoid arrest, thefts
"burns" and being short-changed, as well as buying adulterated goods. He can buy and sell
successfully and with confidence. Anyone arriving on the marijuana scene in a completestranger
situation would encounter great difficulty in making a large purchase.
There is a two-way process at work here. On the one hand, one must be implicated in a
web of social relations to be able to purchase the drug. In this sense, friendship patterns
are a necessary condition for selling to take place. But one's friendship network is not
merely a passive requirement for selling and buying; it is also an active force which
insures one's involvement in selling as an activity, since friends who smoke make requests
and demands that often relate to marijuana sales. In addition, selling further implicates one
in social relations that are marijuana-based. By buying and selling, one extends one's
network of acquaintances, almost all of whom are marijuana users. In short, friendships
and sales intersect with one another; they are inseparable elements of a single dimension.
Their relationship with one another must be seen in dialectical terms, rather than simple
