Summary

The purpose of this study is to investigate natural reward processing in cannabis users. Natural reward processing refers to how a person responds to enjoyable or stimulating non-drug experiences. Two groups will participate in the study: 1) people who use cannabis, and 2) people who do not use cannabis. The study will use personalized scripted imagery which involves developing and listening to a detailed story about a personal experience. Scripted imagery has been used to investigate responses to stress and drug experiences and will be used in this study to investigate responses to naturally rewarding experiences.
