The Effects of Cannabis Use on Wages of Prime-age Males
AbstractThis paper uses a data set collected among inhabitants of Amsterdam, to study whether wages of prime-age male workers are affected by cannabis use. The analysis shows that recent cannabis use has a negative effect on wages. The size of the wage effect depends on the age of onset. The earlier the start of cannabis use the larger the negative wage impact. Copyright 2007 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
