From February 23, 2022, Jim Belushi has made you laugh, and now he's one of the most popular advocates for cannabis farmers in the industry. He joins the host of Calling All Growers with Liz Grow from GrowHouse Media, and the founder of Pro Cannabis Media Jimmy Young for a frank and open conversation about the challenges of growing cannabis in America.
An industrial accident and a near fatal staph infection nearly killed him 30 years ago, then cannabis saved his life by ridding him of an opiod addiction that was worse than the pain he suffered while recuperating from his injuries. Then he became a cannabis reform advocate and got his state of Maine to allow organ donors and those in need of organs an opportunity to receive them despite their past use of cannabis something that had been practiced for decades. Now a successful caregiver in the state of Maine, Uncle Pete's Re-leaf is world renowned, and his patients swear by his organic approach to cannabinoid medicine. In The Weeds Live with Jimmy Young stopped by Uncle Pete's Grow facility in Sanford Maine.
