Other Factor’s 

Drug abuse and conduct disorder are highly associated both in adolescence and adulthood. Investigator from the Pittsburgh Youth Study, a longitudinal study of conduct problems in boys, found a strong association between substance use and delinquent acts (Van kammen, Loeber & Stouthamer-Loeber, 1991) 

For Example:

Among seventh graders who reported having tried marijiuana, more than 30 percent had attacked someone with a weapon and 43 percent admitted breaking and entering; fewer than 5 percent of children who reported no substance use had committed these acts. Depressive disorders are also more prevalent among youth with conduct disorder. Learning disability are co morbid with conduct disorder
