Abstract:Cannabis is the most used drug in Europe. The disadvantages regarding health and the costs for the society are enormously. In this study cannabis consumption of German and Dutch students was examined. Considering the different policy backgrounds the two groups were coming from (restrictive vs. liberal), the possible differences between them were emphasized. Furthermore it was asked to which content the behaviour can be explained by the prototype willingness model (PWM). The participants in this study were 95 Dutch and 62 German students from a Dutch University who filled out an online-survey. Regression analysis was used to examine the effect of nationality on the constructs of the PWM. It came out that the German students in this study used cannabis more frequently then the Dutch students. It seems that the new legal access to cannabis and restrictions that are called off for the German students, who had just moved to the Netherlands, are the reason for this difference. Moreover it can be concluded that the PWM is suitable to explain cannabis consumption of students and that the social reaction pathway adds explaining variance to the reasoned pathway
