The aim of this study was to analyze the role of perceived emotional intelligence (PEI) and impulsivity in cannabis abuse in young. One hundred and forty six university students voluntarily participated in this study and responded anonymously to questions about demographic aspects, alcohol and cannabis use together with the following scales: TMMS-24 of PEI, the Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) and the impulsivity scale (IS). Cannabis abuse is mainly related to emotional attention, alcohol abuse and impulsivity, but not with life satisfaction. Also, interactive effects have been observed between emotional attention and impulsivity and these with alcohol abuse. These results should be taken into account when designing cannabis prevention and treatment programs. © 2013: de los Editores de Ansiedad y Estrés.
