A self-reported measure was administered with the aim of assessing the use of drugs (tobacco, alcohol, cannabis, cocaine, heroin, volatile inhalation agents, speed or amphetamines, hallucinogens), sequential polydrug use, and the practice of sports. The involvement in sports activities was less frequent amongst the non-users of tobacco, cannabis and sequential polydrug use than amongst users. After controlling the effect of age and gender within the regression model, the variable that better predicted the sports practice was the use of cannabis, by means of a negative relationship between both variables.
