Actor, cannabis farmer Jim Belushi wants to tap into Florida market

Florida’s medical cannabis market could be going Hollywood.

Actor, comedian and cannabis farmer Jim Belushi wants to be a player in Florida’s growing medical cannabis marketplace.

Belushi is the owner of Belushi’s Farm, one of 74 entities that submitted a licensure application to the Office of Medical Marijuana Use in the Florida Department of Health. While the state has posted the names of the 74 applicants on its website, it has not yet released redacted applications for the public to review.

Belushi, who made his film debut in “Trading Places,” has operated a 93-acre cannabis farm in Southern Oregon since 2015, when weed became legal there. In 2020, Discovery Channel premiered the reality series Belushi’s Farm. It’s now in its third season.

Belushi told Discovery that while farming is fulfilling, he still enjoys the performance spotlight. “So it was natural for me to bring a camera to the farm and discover a show around it,” he said.
