PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — One of the many people affected by the devastating wildfires that have burned across Oregon in recent weeks is actor, comedian, writer and cannabis farmer Jim Belushi.

For Belushi, his cannabis plants have become almost like family since establishing the farm; a family that came within three miles of burning to the ground.
