Gore says he’s not a user; drugs power his Prius Hybrid car
July 6, 2007
The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that former Vice President Al Gore’s son Al the 3rd was arrested on July 4th after being stopped for speeding. Orange County California deputies said that Gore’s Prius was going 100 miles per hour and when stopped was found to contain marijuana and the prescription drugs Vicodin, Valium, Xanax and Adderall.
“The car’s a Hybrid that my dad bought me,” said Gore #3. “It’s environmentally friendly and runs on marijuana and prescription medication confiscated in routine drug busts. It’s my dad’s thing. I don’t use the stuff except for the car when I’m driving.”
The sheriff’s office reported that Gore had no doctor’s prescriptions and that the smell of marijuana was so strong that police searched the car and found all the drugs.
“The kid was puffing on weed and driving a Prius 100 miles an hour. I think both the car and the kid were on something illegal,” said Jim Ammo, a spokesman for the sheriff’s department.
Former Vice President Al Gore said that the whole thing was a misunderstanding and that the sheriffs’ department should recognize that the Gores’ and Prius’ are environmentally safe and should be allowed to roam free. “Let’s not argue about who may or may not have been speeding or doing drugs,” said the former Vice President. “We need to focus on global warming and issues that are important to all Americans and global citizens.”
Said Ammo, “We’re locking the kid up. And that’s the inconvenient truth.”
