Mary Ann -- More Like Mary Jane!!

3/11/2008 2:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dawn Wells, the actress that played Mary Ann on "Gilligan's Island," was busted with marijuana in her car after driving home from her birthday party in Idaho -- and she's 69!
Click to read documents!
Wells was pulled over on October 18 after a Teton County sheriff noticed her swerve across the center lines of State Highway 33 and repeatedly speeding up and slowing down. A search produced four half-smoked joints and two small cases to store marijuana -- which she blamed on hitchhikers. Even Gilligan wouldn't buy that one!

Wells is now serving a three hour tour six months of unsupervised probation for the crime. She pleaded guilty to one count of reckless driving and was sentenced last month to five days in jail, fined $410.50 and placed on probation.

We were just talking about how nice she looks for being almost 70 years old. Pot smoker at 69, well it's really kinda funny. I just love that mug shot!!

The man who played Gilligan has said in the past she is not new to any of this - has been going on with her for a long long time, even when the show aired.

Hmm...I still dont understand why pot isnt legal considering the fact that alcohol is. People die from alcohol. I've never heard of anyone dying from pot. And those commercials that say we are funding terrorism or that kids that we babysit will drown in a pool because of pot are ridiculous and probably created by Reagan.
The effects of alcohol are far worse than of pot.
Toke it up baby, toke it up.

And to all you haters out there: shut up. You are probably a heavy drinker...so he who is without sin cast the first stone.

Dont knock it til you try it.

Oh and Mary Ann, keep your chin up. It sucks what happened to you, but unfortunately the law is the law. You'll get on just fine.

This show would've made lots more sense if marijuana showed up in the lagoon.

They did try to make alcohol illegal, it didn't work. Go do some research on Prohibtion.
