Cannabis, Cocaine and Jobs
This paper uses a dataset collected among inhabitants of Amsterdam, to study the employment effects of the use of cannabis and cocaine. For females no negative effects of drug use on the employment rate are found. For males there is a negative relationship between past cannabis and cocaine use and employment. However, this relationship has to do with correlation through unobserved personal characteristics and not with causality.
