In this study, researchers examined the correlates of tobacco products, marijuana, and alcohol use in young adults. Researchers drew data from over 1,000 people aged 18 – 24 using a survey. This survey included questions such as whether the person identified with attention seeking traits and whether they had used a product within the past 30 days.

- Marijuana use was related to e-cigarette, hookah, and LCC use, although not as strongly correlated as alcohol use
