Makeda Jahnesta Marley, 29, the youngest child of the late singer-songwriter’s 13 acknowledged children, admitted to having nearly a dozen large marijuana plants insider home west of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, according to the Daily Local News of West Chester.

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 songs such as 'I Shot the Sheriff’ and 'No Woman, No Cry’, brought attention to the Rastafarian movement, whose followers worship the Haile Selassie, the former Ethiopian leader, and use marijuana as an aid to spiritual enlightenment. He died of cancer in 1981 aged 36.
