The son of Al Gore caught with marijuana
    #2294772 - 02/02/04 06:34 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hi to all of you
I found this piece of information very interesting, http://www.salon.com/news/wire/2004/02/02/gore_son/index.html
, in 2 words, al gore junior was caught with marijuana, but won't serve jail time. I do not live in the USA, (i am in germany where the legal climate is a bit more relaxed) but i am very interested about the drug war here. What is your interpretaion of this, mine is:
-the elite also uses drugs
-the elite never goes to prison
-sometimes and in some areas of the USA the police is more tolerant and understanding(especially when a politician is involved ), and won't ruin the life of a person just because of some fun that hurt no one
(i also read something somilar about the niece of George W, and cocaine)

Actually, that's about right for misdemeanor possession. Here, (In Tennessee, that is) it's just a fine plus court costs. It's not as bad here as some think, really. :laugh: Of course, this can vary widely from state to state, though.

Hm, so what is the truth about the drug war in the USA, i am a bit confused. I might go to study here some day, and i like to smoke weed, so i would like to know how is it with police control here. I read some really scary stories about people caught with marijuana, but some friends of mine who were for a couple of years in the USA told me they got all the drugs they wanted without any problem and that the police stops u only if u are suspicious, and if u are white the chance of being searched for drugs is much smaller than if u are a minority. Where is the truth?

I think young Al has had brushes with the law before, as well. As have George Bush's daughters. And Jeb Bush's daughter. And Howard Dean's son. And my dad's son! What a bunch of criminals!

Somewhere in between I'd say.
There can be many extenuating circumstances involved. For example, if you decide to get shit-faced drunk and go driving (with a small bit of pot) and you get pulled over, you're likely to be prosecuted to the maximum.
Having said that, I've been busted once in the 16 years I've smoked. I was very polite and pleasant to the cop, and he merely confiscated my bag and let me go.  If you're cool, and use some common sense, you'll be fine to smoke all you like.  Hope that answers your question! :laugh:

It depends on the cop. Lots of cops are assholes and will do more than just confiscate your weed, no matter how nice you are to them. You got lucky.

you go into a situation with that kind of mindset, you
aren't likely to get away clean.

I'm with ToiletDuk on this one...

anytime I've been pulled over, etiquette and respect
has always gotten me out of the pickle.

Without a doubt, attitude means EVERYTHING in such a situation. If you act like an jerk, you're gonna get treated like one. But, as I said, there can be many extenuating circumstances. If you have a lengthy record, they're probably going to nail you good. Yet another good reason to keep your nose clean.

Noel Bush forged a prescription for Oxycontin and Xanax,which is an automatic felony in Florida. She spent about a week in jail and had to go to rehab. In rehab she got caught with cocaine. I think she served like another week in jail.

I know someone who got arrested under the same circumstances,only he served prison time for prescription forgery,and then he got caught with drugs during probation and he's going to be in the pokey for a long time.

We should all be so lucky to be relatives of those in power...

True, true. Just last week, they sentenced some women here for forging 'scripts. They gave her 3 years. Of course, she also had been in and out of jail for years, though.
