    He acknowledged he has missed a massive campaign of information to the public and said there are risks that can be given a forgery of prescriptions, from there to prepare a program through which it may be a barcode on them to keep control.

    Córdova Villalobos also said that there will be some locations that are distant from the cities, where there are no doctors, let alone recipes, "so there must be more flexible these guidelines until you get beyond this whole system," he said.

    Cordova Villalobos said that the unit has been responsible over the past six months talks with the owners of pharmacies, but showed that there are some cases where there is still resistance and others that seek to reverse the law.

    "We understand that there is a punitive interest, but a concern for the health of Mexicans."
