High Times Magazine, the 45-year-old publication dedicated to cannabis connoisseurs, held its second annual High Times 100 awards ceremony earlier this week in Los Angeles.

The event, hosted by Jim Belushi, recognizes the most influential people in the legal cannabis industry. It also introduced a new Humanitarian of the Year Award to be named after activist and pioneer Dennis Peron, which was accepted by his partner, John Entwistle.

Belushi, the proprietor of his own Belushi’s Farm and a passionate advocate for the medicinal properties of cannabis, lost his brother John to an overdose in 1982. Today, Belushi grows grows craft-quality cannabis rom a 22,000-square-foot facility in the States.

Others to make the HT100 include television personality Montel Williams, Damian Marley (High Times investor and son of Bob Marley), comedian Doug Benson and Cypress Hill’s B-Real.

The event held at Exchange LA included arrivals on a green carpet, dinner and drinks along with an area allowing for product demonstrations.

Other High Times-branded events include the annual Cannabis Cup, High Times Business Summits and an upcoming Women in Cannabis forum.

The magazine, which has featured the likes of Snoop Dogg, Cheech & Chong and Ozzy Osbourne on its cover, relocated to Los Angeles in January 2017 following an ownership change.
