Buffett Supports Florida’s Recreational Marijuana Initiative

From Miami New Times: “Jimmy Buffett Lends Support for Florida’s Recreational Marijuana Initiative

To no one’s surprise, Jimmy Buffett, famous for his “Cheeseburger in Paradise” anthem and Coral Reefer brand, has endorsed the Make it Legal Florida campaign to legalize recreational marijuana in the Sunshine State.

“Pot, weed, marijuana, cannabis — whatever you call it, it’s good medicine,” Buffett says in a video released by the campaign today. “Make it legal.”

Make It Legal Florida has received verified 190,000 signatures in support of its adult-use marijuana initiative and says it is waiting for thousands more to be verified by supervisors of elections around the state. To make the upcoming election ballot, the initiative must collect 766,200 verified signatures by February 2020.

Earlier this year, Buffett partnered with Parallel, formerly Surterra Wellness, to launch his own marijuana brand, also called Coral Reefer.

“Life is supposed to be about having fun and staying healthy enough to enjoy it,” Buffett said at the time. “I think Coral Reefer will help a lot of folks do that.”

Three different polls this year have revealed strong bipartisan for adult-use marijuana. If the initiative makes the ballot, it would need to receive 60 percent approval to pass.

      He really is a very unique individual he has a twinkle in his eye like Santa Claus, he’s met more dead people than we will ever meet alive people and can remember people’s names after 20 years.

  1. yes you are so right. More dead stoned people to follow him too so he wins but florida has more people that can’t drive straight, can’t follow simple instructions or pay attention without a phone in their hand

  2. I believe in legalization but under control like alcohol, DUI laws . I grew up in the 60’s-70’s but today’s pot needs control ! Now let’s see who throws back at me !!
