Sure -- several ways, all based on the same principle.  The following works
for me, placed in the object that is clicked to initiate the drag:

on mouseDown
  set the uAllowDrag of me to the mouseH & "," & the mouseV
end mouseDown

on mouseMove x,y
  if the uAllowDrag of me is empty then exit mouseMove
  put globalLoc(x & "," & y) into tLoc
  set topLeft of this stack to \
      item 1 of tLoc - item 1 of the uAllowDrag of me,\
      item 2 of tLoc - item 2 of the uALlowDrag of me
end mouseMove

on mouseUp
  set the uAllowDrag of me to empty
end mouseUp

on mouseRelease
end mouseRelease
