PEREZ RICART, Carlos A.. The Role of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics in Mexican Drug Policy Design (1940-1968). Frontera norte [online]. 2019, vol.31, e2045.  Epub 01-Ene-2019. ISSN 2594-0260.  https://doi.org/10.33679/rfn.v1i1.2045.

The paper examines the role played by the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN) – a law enforcement body within the U.S. Department of the Treasury – in the design and execution of drug policy in Mexico between 1940 and 1968. Drawing on primary sources from half a dozen collections of documents in Mexico and the United States, the article aims to answer two key questions: “What mechanisms did the FBN use to intervene in Mexican drug policy during the period?” and “What was its true impact and effectiveness?” This case study aims to contribute to research on drug policy in Mexico and study the influence exercised by various U.S. actors and organizations in this regard.
