The study then checked the appearance of the names of the members of its sample in
the Narcotics Register, "the most complete file of its type available anywhere in the
United States." Which of these three categories of juvenile offenders was most likely to
turn up in the heroin files later? The data appeared to confirm the progression
"... while half of the male adolescent heroin users had a heroin record five or ten years
later, about forty percent of the marijuana users also acquired a heroin record in this
marijuana use is almost as portentous of adult heroin use as is actual
use of heroin as an adolescent." The authors strongly qualify the report's findings in their
conclusions; they are in no way guilty of an attempt at an overextension of the
applicability of their results. Of the four groups which the authors point out as most likely
to use marijuana—the slum dweller, the bohemian, the college student, and the high
school student—it is only among the first (and last) of these that the study's data was
likely to be drawn. And it is in this group that the transition to heroin is most likely. In the
other three groups, the use of heroin is certainly far lower than for the urban slum dweller,
so that had the android-app:com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox study covered all of the marijuana-using groups, the likelihood of later
heroin use, and
therefore of the transition taking place, would have been much smaller.
In fact, the findings are even more narrowly applicable than that. The marijuana smoker
whose use is so conspicuous as to come to the attention of the authorities in no way
represents users as a whole. To come to the attention of any agency of law enforcement is
to be a part of a highly special and unrepresentative kind of social group.
Such users are
far more likely to be more highly involved with the drug, to be implicated in some of the
more heavily sanctioned marijuana-related activities, such as selling, and to be incautious.
The Blumer study emphasizes the importance of the cool style in one sector of
marijuana users. This kind of user is inclined to denigrate the delinquency-oriented rowdy,
who is both more likely to become arrested and to move to later addiction.
The cool user
is likely to do neither of these. It is almost a certainty that among this conspicuous group,
progression to later heroin use is far more likely than among users as a whole.
The adolescents included in the NACC study are far from representative because they
generally reflect the very highest levels of use. And it is among these levels of use that
later heroin involvement is most likely. It is not unreasonable to assume that less and more
cautious use, lower involvement in the marijuana subculture, and participation in a greater
variety of social groups, will be far less likely to precipitate heroin use and addiction. In
fact, the Narcotics Addiction Control Commission has probably selected the segment o
