Is Al Gore's kid a pot head and prescription drug junkie?
Al Gore III, son of former US vice president Al Gore, is facing drug and traffic charges in California after being stopped for speeding and being in possession of marijuana.
A spokesperson for the Orange County Sheriff's Department in suburban Los Angeles said that the 24-year-old was driving more than 160km/h, far above the legal speed limit, when he was stopped early yesterday in Laguna Hills, California.
The sheriff's deputy making the traffic stop smelled marijuana and conducted a search, which yielded a small amount of cannabis and several controlled medications, for which he had no prescriptions, authorities said.
The "several controlled medications for which he had no prescription, included drugs for ADD, Xanax, Valium, Vicodin and Adderall. Heh. Can you blame him? I'd need a helluva lot more than that to numb myself if Al Gore was my dad.
Wait ... Prius's can go 160mph?
