Arizona mom accused of smuggling pot held in Mexico

An Arizona Mom being held in Mexico claims she's been framed.

Yanira Maldonado is in a Mexican jail tonight accused of trying to smuggle more than 12 pounds of marijuana back into the United States.

Arizona mom's Mexico drug arrest is 'about money,' husband says

But her family says it's all a big mistake, and the pot found under her seat on a commercial bus wasn't theirs.

    If she's innocent stop traveling to Mexico and boycott the travel/tourism industry IMMEDIATELY – that'll hit them in the pocketbooks and they'll step up and fix the problem internally. When the money stops rolling in, they'll get the message.
