That's a Pretty Heavy Score

Over the past few days, I have thought a lot about the assortment of drugs that were found on Al Gore's son when he was busted. It's really disturbing to me, and it has nothing to do with any political preference or affiliation.

Pot is one thing. But I consider pot to be absolutely harmless in the light of all the other drugs they found on him: Xanax, Valium, Vicodin, and Adderall. This is a very hefty lineup and I think that Al Gore would be well served to take some time out of what he's' doing in order to straighten out his adult son. Albert III is 24 years old. There is a major issue in his self identity that needs to be addressed and if it's not done now, it's going to be a long, difficult, co-dependent life for both Al III and Al II.

Xanax, Valium, and Vicodin are all downers, ways to deal with anxiety. Adderall is a major, major amphetamine that should not be played with. A doctor better know very well what they're doing if they prescribe it. But this combination, I think a lot of people can deduce, is designed to keep Albert as far away from the reality of his life as possible. The litany of drugs he's taking coupled with something to keep him awake and cogent is serious business.

I say this as someone who is actually concerned about what is going on here.

And any of you smarty-pants out there can very well say "duh, Jones, all drugs are meant to keep you from reality". This is not the same. And if it's not taken care of, Albert will permanently alter his brain chemistry and he might never have the chance to differentiate himself and life a satisfying life.

The news report stated that AlIII did NOT have scrips for ANY of the drugs.

Makes you wonder about where and how the drugs were produced.

Addiction is a terrible way of life.
