    Al Gore's son 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 said they smelled marijuana and searched the car, Amormino said. They found less than an ounce of marijuana along with Xanax, Valium, Vicodin and Adderall, which is used for attention deficit disorder, he said.

    "He does not have a prescription for any of those drugs," Amormino said.

    Gore was being held in the men's central jail in Santa Ana on $20,000 bail.

    Kalee Kreider, a spokeswomen for his parents, did not immediately return phone messages to The Associated Press on Wednesday.

    I have a 24-year-old adult child as well. Note that the operative word here is ADULT, which means she is old enough to accept the responsibility for her own actions---good and bad.

    I don't have much use for Al Gore, but as parents, he and Tipper aren't responsible for their son's legal problems. They shouldn't have to endure the media feeding frenzy and public judgment that will surely follow this news.

    If he borrows the money from fat daddy Al - does that mean I get to say he is "living on Daddy's green"? Green is big business these days - of course GREEN has always held special meaning to the Gore family. So did "selling pork in Tennessee".

    I don't think it's that. I think it's that a lot of people take pleasure in other people's suffering. :lol:
