was pulled over by the police earlier this month in California
and drugs were discovered in his car. Al Gore's son faces two

The son of Al Gore was pulled over on July
4th after he was clocked going over 100mph in a fuel-efficient
Toyota Prius. A smell of marijuana prompted the police to search
the vehicle, in which they discovered some pot and bottles
containing Valium, Vicadin, Xanax, and Adderall. All of those
drugs are by prescription only, which Gore III did not have.
Al Gore III could face up to three years in
jail for the offences, but may be eligible for a drug rehab
