J.C. Suris et al., “Some Go Without a Cigarette: Characteristics of Cannabis Users Who Have Never Smoked Tobacco,” Archives of Pediatric Adolescent Medicine 161, issue 11 (November 2007): 1042-1047.

This study examined differences between youth who use both tobacco and marijuana compared to youth who use marijuana only, and to youth using neither substance. The marijuana-only adolescents showed better functioning than those who also use tobacco. In most ways they were similar to the abstainers, did not seem to have psychosocial problems at a higher rate, had better peer relationships, were more involved in sports, and more likely to be on an academic (as opposed to vocational) track in school.
