    Durante los ultimos cinco años la seguridad publica en Mexico ha empezado a ser uno de los principales problemas para la sociedad civil y las autoridades. Analistas han advertido que la inseguridad se esta extendiendo a regiones que anteriormente no eran afectadas. Utilizando tecnicas de econometria espacial el presente articulo investiga si y como el crimen de drogas en un determinado estado de Mexico se extiende a sus estados vecinos. Se utilizan datos panel para los 31 estados mexicanos y la Ciudad de Mexico durante el periodo 1997-2010. Contralando por las caracteristicas politicas y socioeconomicas de las regiones de Mexico, se encuentra un efecto de contagio positivo y significativo de los crimenes relacionados al trafico de drogas. Estos hallazgos toman en cuenta la endogeneidad inherente a la regresion espacial utilizando una estimacion 2SLS. Los resultados son robustos a la seleccion de la matriz ponderadora de rezagos espaciales. Ademas se encuentra una evidencia debil de un efecto disuasivo en los estados vecinos al estado i al controlar por medidas coercitivas contra las drogas. Esto implica que las medidas de disuasion de las autoridades en los estados vecinos al estado i reducen debilmente los crimenes de drogas en el estado i.
