Al Gore III - What a dope

Al Gore's 24-year-old son graced our fair county with his presence earlier today - allegedly with an ounce of marijuana and other controlled substances (Vicodin, Valium, Xanax and Adderall) he didn't have a prescription for. He was stopped by the OC sheriff's department when they caught him going 100 mph on the I-5 south.

Gore got to spend most of the 4th in the Orange County Jail, and was released at around 2 p.m., reports the Times. Bail was set at $20,000, notes the Register.

Funny tidbit: He's the associate publisher of GOOD, a magazine about philanthropy aimed at young people.

Also: This isn't the first time it's happened. A CNN story from 2003 spins a similar tale.
