Government auctioned cars laden with pot

The US government has been auctioning off cars containing marijuana to unsuspecting customers. Francisco Rivera and Alfonso Calderon bought one such car and were arrested by Mexican authorities and spent time in a Mexican prison.

"They turned their back on us at the moment we needed them most," says Alfonso Calderon, speaking in Spanish. "They were the ones who got us into this mess. They sold us a car loaded with drugs."

In a separate incident, Aguado Cervantes spent three months in a U.S. jail after being arrested for having 119 pounds of marijuana in the car he bought from a US government auction.

"I put 100 percent of my trust in the American government," he says in Spanish. "I never imagined they would sell me a car loaded with drugs.
