Buffett Supports Florida’s Marijuana Initiative

December 23rd, 2019


Jimmy Buffett has come out in support of 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.

Make It Legal would allow individuals age 21 years and older to use and purchase marijuana. However, the initiative would prohibit cannabis grown at home, only allowing it to be purchased at dispensaries currently selling medical marijuana. Just this week, an initiative sponsored by Regulate Florida died after failing to receive enough signatures with the looming deadline.

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.”
