Prosecutors have until Aug. 1 to charge Gore's son


SANTA ANA, Calif. -- Prosecutors said Thursday they have until Aug. 1 to decide whether to file charges against Al Gore's son following his arrest on suspicion of illegally possessing marijuana and prescription drugs.

Al Gore III, 24, was driving about 100 mph on the San Diego Freeway early Wednesday when he was pulled over, Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said. Sheriff's deputies said they found a small amount of marijuana plus Xanax, Valium, Vicodin and Adderall, which is used for attention deficit disorder, in his Toyota Prius.

The younger Gore did not have a prescription for any of the drugs, Amormino said. He was released from jail on $20,000 bail.
