What does Mary Ann And Snoop Dogg have in common

http://tv.msn.com/tv/article.aspx?news=304846&GT1=7703


DRIGGS, Idaho -- Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on "Gilligan's Island," is serving six months' unsupervised probation after allegedly being caught with marijuana in her car.

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.

On Oct. 18, Teton County sheriff's Deputy Joseph Gutierrez arrested Wells as she was driving home from a surprise birthday party that was held for her. According to the sheriff's office report, Gutierrez pulled Wells over after noticing her swerve and repeatedly speed up and slow down. When Gutierrez asked about a marijuana smell, Wells said she'd just given a ride to three hitchhikers and had dropped them off when they began smoking something. Gutierrez found half-smoked joints and two small cases used to store marijuana.

The 69-year-old Wells, founder of the Idaho Film and Television Institute and organizer of the region's annual family movie festival called the Spud Fest, then failed a sobriety test.

Wells' lawyer, Ron Swafford, said that a friend of Wells' testified that he'd left a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle after using it that day, and that Wells was unaware of it. Swafford also said several witnesses were prepared to testify that Wells had very little to drink at the party and was not intoxicated when she left. He said she was swerving on the road because she was trying to find the heater controls in her new car.

Marijuana is a Schedule I drug. It is considered to be more dangerous than cocaine:

Schedule I drugs

Main article: List of Schedule I drugs

Findings required:

(A) The drug or other substance has high potential for abuse.
(B) The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.
(C) There is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.

The Skipper had Gilligan as his little buddy.

Mary Ann has her own little bud-ie.

Well she did grow up on a farm. Imagine the weed she could have grown if she had some that was radioactive.

That is just a bunch of propaganda. The reason it is Class I is that it was thrown under the bus by cotton growers and bible thumpers back in the day. The fed. refuses to recognize the medicinal use of it as an antiemetic, treatment for anxiety, and used as an adjunct for chronic pain.

Cocaine is not a Schedule I because it was used medically way back when, particularly in dentistry as a topical. It still has some limited uses today, but probably far less than medical marijuana.

As for "dangerous".....have you heard of anyone overdose on Marijuana? Which is more likely to cause dependence?

They both have voices similar to a crow. Oh, wait... so we're not talking about Mary Ann from Brooklyn? Never mind then.

Yeah, she's starting to show her age. She looks too much like Gollum's mom to be the object of sexual desire.

Don't take it from Pedagogue. Take it from Dr. Katt Williams:

Maybe that is why they never left the island... and when they finally did... they went back.

I just found this on Bob Denver's ("Gilligan") Wiki page:

In 1998, Denver was arrested for having a parcel of marijuana delivered to his home. He originally said that the parcel had come from Dawn Wells (who had played "Mary Ann" on Gilligan's Island) but later refused to name her in court, and testified that "some crazy fan must have sent it".
