Southern Sky Brands will have a VIP booth on the Square, and Belushi will be there signing autographs and taking photos with the public.
Belushi is in town promoting Season 3 of his hit show Growing Belushi on Discovery. Steve Merritt of Southern Sky Brands will be featured in Episode 4, which airs April 26.

The event will also serve the public by helping eligible patients sign up for medical cannabis cards.
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 where the sun, water and air make the perfect
combination to sustain naturally powerful and beautiful cannabis.
Belushi’s Farm is home to a range of offerings including The Blues Brothers, Captain Jack’s Gulzar Afghanica (a rare strain from the Hindu Kush region that became known in the ’70s as “The Smell of SNL”), Good Ugly Weed, and GROWING BELUSHI on The Discovery Channel. Having suffered the loss of his brother John to an overdose, and his own journey learning and healing through cultivating cannabis, the farm’s proprietor, performer Jim Belushi, is a proponent of the plant’s beneficial properties across a spectrum of uses. From enhancing joy and quality of life, mitigating trauma and managing pain, to a harm reduction approach and rebuttal of the opioid abuse epidemic, Jim advocates for patient rights, adult-use legalization, and freeing cannabis prisoners as an ambassador for Last Prisoner Project, while empowering newcomers to access the profound spiritual and healing powers of quality cannabis.
