College students who consume medium-to-high levels of alcohol and marijuana have a consistently lower GPA, according to a new study.

You will probably see this as front-page news in the mainstream media.  Self-important people will be smugly saying “I told you so”, and many naive people will believe the implication– that marijuana and alcohol CAUSE lower grade scores.

Has it ever occurred to them what happens to the student that lacks good study habits, or parents that push them to study,  or lacks the self-discipline to pay attention in school, or hangs with the wrong crowd and is distracted by alternate interests, like cars, dating, social networks, video games, etc?  That type of student will not only struggle more in school, but will be more likely to associate with similar struggling students who find yet ANOTHER distraction:  getting high!  It feels good, is fun, and helps them to forget their misery in school.

Time and time again, I see misplaced causality.  Many legitimate studies have have debunked cannabis as the causal agent, and attributed the cause to be as I have just suggested– socioeconomic conditions are the cause of the marijuana or alcohol (or other intoxicants) use, not vice versa.  What is more fun– playing computer games or studying?  Without parental pressure to do the latter, kids will succumb to distractions and THAT causes poor studying habits and increased struggles.  Finding yet another distraction (getting high) is a natural follower.
