Abstract

This paper explores the cognitive origins of cannabis use, and revisits the effect of cannabis use on wages. It provides evidence of a positive and significant relationship be- tween cognitive ability and cannabis use and confirms the wage returns to cognitive ability. It then shows that the relationship between cannabis use and wages observed in cross-sectional estimates is spurious and derives instead from the omission of cognitive ability.
