A 48-year-old Crawfordville woman was charged with cultivation of marijuana Friday, May 27 at 12:27 a.m. after Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office investigators discovered plants growing at her home, according to Wakulla County Sheriff David Harvey.

Cynthia Lee White was arrested on the drug charge and transported to the Wakulla County Jail without incident.

“Deputy Lorne Whaley and Reserve Deputy Timothy Hightower were responding to another complaint at the home when they observed marijuana plants growing in the garden nearby,” said Sheriff Harvey. “They discovered 49 plants growing in three locations at the home.”

Two plants were observed in the garden and more plants were observed growing in two to three gallon containers under the back porch and near a shed. The 49 plants were well cared for and ranged in size from three inches to 18 inches in height. The plants were seized and turned in as evidence. They were valued at $49,000.

    First of all, there is nothing funny about prison rape. Second, don't you wonder just a bit what her job on the jail work crew will be? D) This is what happens when you cut bright futures.

    48 yr old "woman" ? all pun aside, that photo looks like a man wearing a wig. LOL! although i am 100% against all illegal drug activity, the marijuana produced if made legal WOULD be taxed. and if taxed as much as a pack of cigarettes, the USA would be out of debt within 10 yrs. what i DO NOT understand is: it is illegal to possess or purchase alcohol if under 21 yrs of age. BUT, you can enter the armed forces and get yourself killed at 17. if a person is serving in the military 17 - 21 with a military ID, we should be legit to serve them.

      Out of all the comments here thus far, I enjoyed reading this one best. It's neither rude nor insensitive and is actually quite humorous. Thanks for just keeping it simple and real.

      Well Dave, we never know what kind of terrorists live amongst us. We are blessed to have such a strong and ethical police force to protect us from little ole ladies living their lives as they choose. If only someone had reached out in the 60's, 70's 80's 90's and even now, this life could have been saved. Thank heavens for Harvey's police academy!

    Where was she when I needed a date for the senior prom. What a debutante.

    Hard to believe she's only 48. And you say pot isn't harmful.

      She probably does a little meth too. She looks at least 68!
