Predictors of cannabis use in men with and without psychosis
Background: Factors associated with cannabis use among people with psychosis are not well understood. -----
Aims: To examine whether people with psychosis and age-matched controls modified cannabis use in response to recent experiences. -----
Method: This study predicted 4 weeks of cannabis use prospectively, using expectancies derived from recent occasions of use. -----
Results: People with psychosis used cannabis less frequently than controls, but had more cannabis-related problems. More negative cannabis expectancies resulted in less frequent cannabis use over Follow-up. The psychosis group was more likely to moderate cannabis use after negative effects than controls. -----
Conclusions: Results offer optimism about abilities of people with psychosis tomoderate cannabis use in the short term.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
