In recent times many experts and organizations have questioned the global policy on drug control and particularly aim at least the legalization of marijuana. This document provides an over view of the Mexican legislative policy on drug control, which in general is prohibitive and is based and inspired by the international conventions on drugs. The paper also examines the extent to which progress can be made within the existing framework, with the added ingredient of recent decisions of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation, which in light of human rights, have opened possibilities for recreation a land medicinal use of marijuana. It also discusses who is responsible for legislating in this area, concluding that setting health policy and general health is an all ocation off federal jurisdiction and that while states may establish special regulations on this issue; they cannot go more beyond or contradict the provisions of Congress.
