Jimmy Buffett spent some time in Havana, Cuba a couple of weeks ago. He did an impromptu show outside a bar in Havana. It was just Jimmy, a guitar, and a mojito. Some marines were there for the show and shot the video (they were a little off beat on the salt, salt, salt).
From Saint Peters Blog: “Jimmy Buffett cuts video explaining why he supports Amendments 1 & 2”
Singer and Florida-lifestyle entrepreneur Jimmy Buffett took to YouTube today to explain why he supports both Amendment 1, the Environmental Land Conservation proposal, and Amendment 2, which seeks to legalize medical marijuana.
In the three-minute video, Buffett points out that election time in Florida means “anything could happen.”
In his support of the two amendments, which he calls “interesting and vital propositions,” he says that both could “affect the quality of life in the Sunshine State.”
Amendment 1 preserves the heart of Florida’s existence, he says, giving voters a “direct opportunity to protect our rivers, springs and beaches,” as well sources of drinking water — without raising taxes.
“We all deserve to live in the best Florida possible,” Buffett says. “And it is the treasure we need to preserve for future generations.”
Quoting Carl Hiaasen’s fictional former Florida Governor Clinton Tyree, he adds: “There’s no better place to be than the middle of nowhere.”
Amendment 1 will ensure there is “a lot of nowhere in Florida,” he says.
As for Amendment 2, Buffett cites the 82 percent of supporters who approve of the legalization of medical marijuana.
“It’s good medicine, and I know,” he says, referring to the time he was severely injured walking offstage in Australia. Medical marijuana played a role in his recovery.
“Proposition 1 is good medicine for Florida. Proposition 2 is just good medicine.”
