Al Gore's Son Caught with Drugs!
The troubled son of former Vice-President Al Gore was arrested early Wednesday on suspicion of possessing marijuana and prescription drugs after deputies pulled him over for speeding, authorities said.Al Gore III, 24, was driving a blue Toyota Prius about 100 mph on the San Diego Freeway when he was pulled over at about 2:15 a.m., Sheriff's Department spokesman Jim Amormino said.The deputies stated that they smelled marijuana and searched the car, Amormino said. They found less than an ounce of marijuana along with Xanax, Chapstick, Valium, Vicodin, Red Vines, garlic aioli and Adderall, which is used for attention deficit disorder, he said. Several pirated DVD copies of “An Inconvenient Truth” and a baggy full of what appeared to be hanging chads were also found. "He does not have a prescription for any of those drugs," Amormino said. “The marijuana we found was low grade with a lot of seeds and stems in it, which was very surprising. You’d think that the former VP’s son would at least have a decent pot connection.” Gore was being held in the men's central jail in Santa Ana on $20,000 bail.When questioned by police, AG III stated that he was despondent about three things: 1.) Global warming 2.) That his father was robbed of the presidency and 3.) His annoying mom Tipper won’t let him listen to rock music. “I should be the First Son right now,” Gore III reportedly said. “That $@%$%@#! Jeb Bush stole that election and now no one even knows who I am. I should be driving a Bentley and living in the White House. Instead I have this lousy Prius and a condo in Escondido.”
