    Copied from p.229-230 of 'Drugs and Behavior' by William A. McKim.

    Amotivational Syndrome

    It has sometimes been observed that when a young person starts smoking
    marijuana there are systematic changes in that person's lifestyle,
    ambitions, motivation, and possibly personality. These changes have
    been collectively referred to as the _amotivational syndrome_, whose
    symptoms are:

    "... apathy, loss of effectiveness, and diminished capacity or
    willingness to carry out complex, long-term plans, endure frustration,
    concentrate for long periods, follow routines, or successfully master
    new material. Verbal facility is often impaired both in speaking and
    writing. Some individuals exhibit greater introversion, become totally
    involved with the present at the expense of future goals and
    demonstrate a strong tendency toward regressive, childlike, magical
    thinking[1]."

    There is no doubt that many young individuals have changed from clean,
    aggressive, upwardly mobile achievers into the sort of person just
    described at about the same time as they started smoking marijuana.
    What is not clear, however, is a causal relationship between the loss
    of middle class motivations and cannabis. Which comes first, the
    marijuana or the loss of motivations? This is not easy to answer. In
    fact, there may be no clearcut answer. To begin with, all we know
    about the amotivational syndrome is a result of a few case histories.
    These data cannot answer questions about: a) how common the syndrome
    is; b) whether the marijuana actually caused the change in behavior;
    or c) if the change is caused by marijuana, if it is best described as
    a change in all motivations, specific motivations, or something other
    than motivation, like ability or personality.

    It does not appear as though the amotivational syndrome is all that
    common among marijuana smokers. In one survey[2] a sample of almost
    2000 college students was studied. There was no difference in grade
    point average and achievement between marijuana users and nonusers,
    but the users had more difficulty deciding on career goals, and a
    smaller number were seeking advanced professional degrees. On the
    other hand, other studies have shown lower school averages and higher
    dropout rates among users than nonusers. In any case these differences
    are not great. If there is such a thing as amotivational syndrome, its
    affects appear to be restricted to a few individuals, probably the
    small percentage who become heavy users.

    Laboratory studies provide additional information on the causal
    relationship between motivation and marijuana. The Mendelson[3]
    experiment, where hospitalised volunteers worked on an operant task to
    earn money and marijuana for 26 days, found that the dose of marijuana
    smoked did not influence the amount of work done by either the
    casual-user group or the heavy-user group; all remained motivated to
    earn and take home a significant amount of money in addition to the
    work they did for the marijuana. It seems clear that marijuana does
    not cause a loss of motivation.

    While marijuana does not specifically diminish motivation, it is clear
    that cannabis affects attention and memory, and these are intellectual
    capacities usually considered necessary for success in educational
    institutions. We know that a significant tolerance develops to these
    effects and they can be suppressed voluntarily at low doses, but
    consistent smoking of high doses of marijuana must impede a successful
    academic career. In fact, achievement motivation must be high indeed
    in any individual who combines high levels of cannabis use with a
    successful academic career.

    Since most reports of the amotivational syndrome originated in the
    sixties in North America, what they seem to describe is a tendency for
    college students to 'drop out' and assume a lifestyle that rejects
    traditional achievement motivations of their parents' generation. In
    an effort to understand this rejection it was very easy to believe
    that it was pharmacological and to dismiss it as 'amotivational
    syndrome.'

    I find that lighting up another blunt once you feel your high deminishing a bit keeps you so zooted you don't get lazy or pass out, until you get on towards the end of the day and you've been blazin all day...
