A subsequent search yielded a small amount of marijuana, along with prescription drugs including Valium, Xanax, Vicodin and Adderall, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. There were no prescriptions found, he said.

I had heard that the elder President Bush's son was once arrested for DUI and had a cocaine problem, and then he himself became President.
Bullshit.

Some people have stated that theoretically, a Prius will beat an Enzo Ferrari.......

It'd probably do 100 mph, but by then the cork would be pretty much out of the bottle...
