I didn't know they had dope on Gilligan's Island?
Apparently the skipper had more in his cargo than originally thought. No wonder they never made it off the island!!! Mary Ann had weed!!!
In all seriousness, Dawn Wells (who played Mary Ann) is now serving six months of unsupervised probation after being caught with marijuana in her vehicle. According to AOL, "She was sentenced Feb. 29 to five days in jail, fined $410.50 and placed on probation after pleading guilty to one count of reckless driving. Under a plea agreement, three misdemeanor counts - driving under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance - were dropped."
Wells had been pulled over after an officer saw her driving recklessly. He found half smoked joints and a container for storing marijuana in her vehicle. Wells claimed they belonged to hitchhikers who she had recently given a ride to (come on, is that the best you could do? Hitchhikers? Nobody picks those up anymore...especially celebrities...or washed up celebrities). Wells continued to impress the officer by then failing a sobriety test (her lawyer later claimed she had recently come from a party where she hadn't had that much to drink. Her swerving was caused by her attempting to locate the heating controls in her car- by the way I'm laughing so hard right now I'm having a hard time writing this).
