Blazing Away Again in Margaritaville?

Blazing Away Again in Margaritaville?

It was only a matter of time, right? Eventually Jimmy Buffett had to get into the cannabis game. Parrotheads of the world rejoice — your favorite pirate has finally taken the plunge.

Jimmy Buffett has been virtually synonymous with flip flops, cheeseburgers, margaritas, and just about anything tropical for decades. While his song lyrics often point to rum and tequila as Buffett’s preferred form of relaxation, the writer and entrepreneur has actually been a vocal advocate for medicinal marijuana for quite some time. And because he lives in Palm Beach, Florida, he played a key role in the state’s vote to decriminalize weed.

Here Comes the Coral Reefer

While it might be easy to think Buffett is jumping into cannabis for his harder-partying fans, you’d actually be mistaken. Buffett’s never shied away from his love for herb, but it’s actually the medicinal benefits of pot that piqued Buffett’s interest. And that’s why he’s chosen to partner with Suterra, an Atlanta-based cannabis company that operates ten dispensaries in Florida.

According to spokesman for Buffet’s Coral Reefer brand, Buffett considered partner with several cannabis companies before settling on Suterra. This decision was made in large part because the company focuses primarily on the health benefits of pot instead of recreation. The Coral Reefer line of products will focus on providing pain relief, improving appetite, and managing symptoms associated with chemotherapy.

Where to Buy

Now, let’s answer the next big question. Where and when can you buy Buffett products? Sunterra has an extensive network of dispensaries in Florida, including Miami Beach, Jacksonville, and Pensacola. The future is unclear as to whether or not the products will be sold outside of the Sunshine State.

As for when the products will go on sale — come Monday. OK, just kidding. If you live in Florida, you can expect to see Coral Reefer Products hit shelves in Spring 2019.
