Marijuana, which is a substance derived from the cannabis sativa process, has become by far the most widely used illegal drug of abuse or hallucinogenic substance in the world; the national addiction survey shows that it still occupies by far the first place among the addictions of this group of substances, data that coincide between this survey, the multiple care centers that had their growth in the past administration, and treatment centers by particular way, as well as forensic medical services and hospital emergency services. You have begun to observe your consumption since eleven years, and in our country there is a number of around one million people between the ages of 12 and 65 who are heavily dependent on one or more drugs, and it is calculated at the end of the day that in Mexico there are up to one and a half million people who consume marijuana.
