Al Gore III, 24, was driving a blue Toyota Prius with a "Vote for Bush" sticker on the rear window at 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 stated that they a "smelled a liberal" as well as marijuana and searched the car, Amormino said. They found less than an ounce of marijuana along with Xanax, Valium, Vicodin, Pine-Sol, Pop Rocks, Red Vines and Adderall, which is used for attention deficit disorder, he said.
Several pirated DVD copies of "An Inconvenient Truth" and two large garbage bags full of what appeared to be hanging chads were also found.
"He does not have a prescription for any of those drugs," Amormino said. "The marijuana we found was low grade with a lot of seeds and stems in it, which was very surprising. You'd think that the former VPs son would at least have a decent pot connection."
Gore was being held in the men's central jail in Santa Ana in the Robert Downey Junior Wing. His bail is $20,000.
When questioned by police, AG III stated that he was despondent about three things:
1.) Global warming 2.) That his father was robbed of the presidency and 3.) His annoying mom Tipper won't let him listen to rock music.
"I should be the First Son right now," Gore III reportedly said. "That $@%$%@#! Jeb Bush stole that election and now no one even knows who I am. I should be driving a Bentley and living in the White House. Instead I have that lousy Prius and a condo in Encino."
The son of the former vice president and Democratic presidential nominee also was pulled over and arrested for pot possession in December 2003, in Bethesda, Md., while he was a student at Harvard University.
He completed substance abuse counseling at the Courtney Love House in Malibu as part of a pretrial diversion program to settle those charges.
