Old Rockers Love Their Drugs
First Willie Nelson gets caught with a boat load of weed and now Jimmy Buffet gets caught with more than 100 pills of the club drug, ectasy. It happened at an airport in France where Jimmy came in on a private plane. Custom officials started poking around his luggage and found the shit.
Buffett, who was on his way to chill out in the ritzy resort town of St. Tropez, was detained, but not arrested, and allowed to go free after paying a fine of 300 euros - about $380. That prompted one local newspaper editorial to term the slap-on-the-wrist punishment "a small amount for a man who makes $70 million a year."
A spokeswoman for Buffett - whose hits include "Cheeseburger in Paradise" and "Why Don't We Get Drunk" - denied he'd had any ecstasy in the luggage. The rep insisted, "It was medicine prescribed by his doctor." But she wouldn't name the medicine or what ailment Buffett was using it for. She also refused to comment on why, if the substance was legally prescribed, Buffett agreed to pay the fine.
Damn, I didn't know old people could rock out like that. I wonder if his pills had little margaritas on them. I remember from my "rave" days the fucking names of those dumb pills. They had stupid names like "purple iguana" and "red pandas". Jesus.
