He shares his passion for the plant and its healing properties, as well as the challenges and rewards of being a cannabis farmer.

Jim also reflects on his acting career, which spans over three decades and includes iconic roles in movies such as “The Blues Brothers,” “About Last Night,” and “K-9.” He shares insights on the craft of acting, the challenges of Hollywood, and the importance of staying true to yourself. He even shares some not-so-great memories of working with actor Tom Hanks, whom Jim considers a bit of a douche.
Of course, no conversation with Jim would be complete without mentioning his late brother, John Belushi. Jim shares fond memories of his brother and the impact he had on his life and career. He also opens up about the difficult times following John’s untimely death and how he found healing through music and comedy.
