Awwwww.....poor Al Gore. Just when his career in science fiction movie making was taking off - his kid gets busted for driving 100 mph while high on marijuana and a plethora of anti-depressants.
If Al Gore, a pseudo-science buffoon with a penchant for making an ass of himself, was my dad: I might be driving around self-medicating too! Between "inventing the internet", self-destructing at the cusp of obtaining the White House, and creating hysteria around a phony "global warming" boondoggle - Al Gore just didn't have enough time to spend with his children.
Part of me can't blame the poor guy for wanting to numb-out with some recreational drugs. Having Al and Tipper as parents would drive anyone to drink.
