Jimmy Buffett Backs Florida's Medical Marijuana Amendment 2

"Duh," says yacht-rocker Jimmy Buffett about Amendment 2 in Florida that would legalize medical marijuana on Nov. 8. "All it took was for me to fall off the stage in Australia and have to get serious medical attention afterwards. And I can tell you from first-hand experience that medical marijuana is a great cure. That's why I'm voting No on 1 and Yes on 2… We've been enjoying the sun for most of our lives in Florida and now it's time to use it right, and use it for everybody's benefit. That's why I'm voting No on 1." 

No on 1 opposes an amendment that would give utility companies further control of the energy market. 

Buffett fell off a stage while performing in Australia in 2011. He banged his head and needed several stitches. His backing group is famously known as the Coral Reefer Band. In 2014, Buffett's company, Margaritaville Enterprises LLC, filed for a trademark with the plan of selling marijuana products under that name.
