A BGC-Ulises Beltrán poll published in Excelsior (4/7) showed that Mexicans believe that drug consumption is a national problem, and are overwhelmingly opposed to most initiatives to liberalize the drug laws. 65% believe that drug consumption is a national problem, with only 29% believing that it is limited to certain regions or individuals. For most drugs, over 80% are opposed to legalizing possession of small quantities for personal use. Even for marijuana, 58% are opposed to legalization. Respondents were split on whether the government should facilitate access to drugs for registered addicts.
