Al Gore, Vice President
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
I bring to your attention the following statements:
"Al Gore and I smoked regularly as buddies. Marijuana, hash. I was his regular supplier… We smoked a lot. We smoked in his car, in his house, we smoked in his parents’ house … we smoked on weekends. We smoked a lot." — John Warnecke
"We smoked Opium more times than I can count." — John Warnecke
With the press being as disrespectful as it sometimes is, it would not be surprising if over the course of the campaign you were eventually asked such questions as the following, to which it might be prudent for you to prepare answers:
How might the repeated breaking of narcotics laws affect later attitudes toward enforcing those same laws?
Is it possible that prolonged use of narcotics might cause brain damage?
Did you inhale?
