"This case represents another step in the fight to construct alternative drug policies that allow Mexico to redirect its security efforts and better address public health", MUCD said in a statement.

The rulings announced Tuesday by the group Mexico United Against Crime were handed down in May.

Following the judge's ruling, which took place in May, MUCD said the country's national health regulator COFEPRIS was ordered to authorise the two petitioners' personal, recreational use of cocaine use.

A judge in Mexico has approved two people to use cocaine recreationally in what has been described as a historic step toward ending the country's deadly "war on drugs". Cofepris, however, has yet to comply, arguing such a move is outside its legal authority. They would have to be confirmed by a higher court before having any effect.

This ruling is going to come into effect if a panel of judges sides with the original decision.

Beneath the fresh ruling, commission officials will likely be required to authorize the 2 petitioners' jabber of cocaine - allowing them to laugh, smoke or shoot it recreationally, nonetheless no longer promote.
