1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Marijuana and job performance: comparing the major streams of research

    Abstract: The principal directions of research on the effects of marijuana on job performance are compared. The main directions of research are controlled experiments, survey research, pre-employment drug testing, and anthropological field research. The results of controlled experiments are in a controlled setting and are therefore difficult to apply to a work setting. Survey research results provide no evidence that marijuana use makes people less productive. The relationship between pre-employment testing and accidents is ambiguous. Anthropological research demonstrates different perceptions of the drug's effects among different cultures and subcultures, suggesting that these effects may be largely socially mediated.
