This year, Jim Belushi of 93-acre Oregon-based cannabis cultivation site, Belushi’s Farm, made an inaugural appearance, telling Forbes, “I’ve been hearing about Hall of Flowers for a while now. I get excited to attend any cannabis event because the community is enlightened. And if they aren’t enlightened the plant will drag them there, and I want to be there when it happens.”
