Bob MarleyMakeda Jahnesta Marley, 29, the youngest among the late reggae superstar Bob Marley's 13 acknowledged children, admitted to having nearly a dozen large marijuana plants inside her home west of Philadelphia, Pa. She was arrested in 2008 after police say they found her removing plants from the basement when officers arrived on a domestic dispute call.

At a February hearing, Marley, who was born just three weeks after her father died, told the court she had exhausted a trust fund she received from her father’s estate when she turned 18. Sentencing is scheduled for October.

Her father, popular for such ganja-themed songs such as "I Shot the Sheriff" and "Kaya," brought attention to the Rastafari movement, whose followers use cannabis as an aid to spiritual enlightenment. He died of cancer in 1981 aged 36. (The Telegraph, Sept. 8)
