Blues Brothers actor Jim Belushi says he wants to develop a Blues Brothers brand of marijuana and get it into Illinois stores when the drug becomes legal for recreational sales in 2020.
“Illinois is going to be a huge market,” Belushi said to Crain’s Chicago Business. “I want to be on the shelves come January 1.”
“He says he’s serious about plans to drive a replica of the Bluesmobile — topped with a joint instead of a giant PA speaker — on Lake Street under the el to mark the occasion,” reported Crain’s.
Belushi owns a 93-acre farm, Belushi’s Farm, and has produced and sold weed in Oregon since it was legalized in 2014.
The actor also intends to establish growing facilities in California and Nevada.
