Abstract

This study examined prevalence and frequency of "club" drug use among college students (N = 831) and associations with marijuana and alcohol use, sensation seeking, and positive and negative affectivity. Eighteen percent (n = 146) of the sample had used club drugs at least once in their lifetime. Results of a logistic regression indicated that club drug use was positively associated with marijuana use, negative affectivity, and female gender. Among those who had tried club drugs in their lifetime, 42% reported no past year use and 22.6% reported using 7-12 times or more in the past year. Regression analysis examined associations between 12-month use frequency and the predictors among those who had tried club drugs. Results indicated that sensation seeking and marijuana use were positively associated with use frequency.
