Bob Marley’s Daughter Receives Probation For Growing Marijuana
Bob Marley’s youngest child will serve 7 years probation for growing marijuana in her Philadelphia area home.
According to The Associated Press, a Chester County judge offered 29-year-old Makeda Jahnesta Marley a choice: a shorter prison term or a long stint on probation. She chose probation but could be forced to serve the prison term if she violates her probation.
Marley’s daughter was arrested in 2008 after police say they found her removing plants from her basement when officers arrived on a domestic-dispute call. She pleaded guilty in September.
Marley’s probation calls for her to undergo random drug tests and stay away from drug users.
Her attorney, Thomas Schindler, tells the West Chester Daily Local News that it won’t be a problem. He called growing marijuana an “aberration.”
