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.

She's so sweet. That is the cutest mug shot ever. Legalize pot or we'll be putting our own mothers in prison soon. She was just trying to prevent glaucoma. I bet she's hungry for a coconut cream pie, right about now.

Party 'till you die!    

Poor little Bobby Espinozo never got invited to any of the good parties. He's still pissed about that! I get baked all the time with my best friend and his mom and she's right around that age! His dad smokes too and he's a multi-millionaire lawyer! Cool, smart, wonderful people for sure!

About 10 years ago, Bob Denver (the guy who played Gilligan) was busted for marijuana too. He had received a package in the mail from, who else, but Dawn Wells (the one who played Mary Ann). It not new to me that she got busted for weed. You go girl!!!!

Dionne Warwick (same age) gets busted for weed and you folks jump on her. Dawn Wells gets busted and you peeps say leave her alone. Is it because Dawn was stranded on an island on a Hollywood set or are you people just inherently racist?

marijuana laws are only an excuse to put blacks and mexicans in jail

a 69 year old lady who doesn't live off government subsidy should be entitled to puff some weed.

She's always been a pot-head. Took a toll on her looks. She had a cute butt when she was younger.

And to Post #6 ME--
Bob Denver is dead. He can't possibly be her supplier. Dumb azz!
