Jim Belushi Calls Growing Cannabis A ‘Mission From God’ As He Reflects On Brother John Belushi’s Death

The “Mission From God” is, of course, a reference to an often quoted line from The Blues Brothers, which grossed more than a hundred million dollars just two years prior to Belushi’s tragic passing. The film was just one in a series of big wins for the comedian whose career was white hot in the mid-70s through early 80s. He first rose to fame as an original cast member on Saturday Night Live, which debuted in 1975. He appeared in 79 episodes, which helped to launch a brief but incredibly popular movie career that included Animal House and the aforementioned Blues Brothers, among others. Along the way, he also became known for some erratic behavior and a larger than life persona that seemed to intersect with tons of other celebrities.
