Al Gore's son busted for drugs in hybrid car

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The 24-year-old son of former Vice President Al Gore was arrested for drug possession on Wednesday after he was stopped for speeding in his hybrid Toyota Prius, a sheriff's official said.

Al Gore III -- whose father is a leading advocate of policies to fight global warming -- was driving his environmentally friendly car at about 160 km per hour on a freeway south of Los Angeles when he was pulled over by an Orange County sheriff's deputy at about 2:15 a.m.

The deputy smelled marijuana and searched the car, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. The search turned up a small amount of marijuana, along with prescription drugs including Valium, Xanax, Vicodin, Adderall and Soma. There were no prescriptions found, he said.

What an amazing story and the amazing part is not the dope and drugs, hell this is Al Gores' kid after all he's gotta have a little something, something to help him out. No, the amazing part is that Little Al the Third managed to get a hybrid Prius close to 100 MPH.

Could all this global warming be due to the fact that Al th third likes to spark up a "splif" on a semi-regular basis. Besides he should be smart enough to know that you can sell your Adderall to the skate punks at his local neighborhood park.
