What began as a meager 48 plants during Oregon’s medical marijuana program in 2015, today Belushi’s Farm encompasses a sprawling and spiritual 93 acres with 1,800 feet of Rogue River riverfront in Southern Oregon’s Banana Belt.

Having suffered the loss of his brother John to an overdose, and his own journey learning and healing through cultivating cannabis, Belushi is a proponent of the plant’s beneficial properties across a spectrum of uses. Belushi advocates for patient rights, adult-use legalization, and freeing cannabis prisoners as an ambassador for Last Prisoner Project.
