A look inside Jim Belushi's 93-acre cannabis farm in Southern Oregon
Five summers ago, actor and musician Jim Belushi came from Los Angeles to rescue the neglected Elks Lodge picnic grounds in Southern Oregon. He repaired the old structures, built a vacation home on a bend in the Rogue River and became the community’s most famous fundraisers. Now he’s growing cannabis and he has a plan to save us from opioid addiction, starting with a pop-up pot dispensary in downtown Portland. What drives him? “Quiet time,” said the 64-year-old performer on Sunday while watching fishermen cast from his riverbank, “is overrated.” Here’s a tour of the 93-acre farm in Eagle Point that keeps him so busy.
