Heavy-weed champion of the world? Mike Tyson launches California cannabis farm

Mike Tyson Starts Marijuana Empire With 'Tyson Ranch'

Mike Tyson Preparing to Revolutionize Marijuana Industry, Breaks Ground on 'Tyson Ranch'

Now that weed is officially legal in California, Mike Tyson is hoping to make some green by growing it!

Former boxer Mike Tyson is ready to cash in on marijuana, which was recently legalized for recreational use in California.

Hickman told TheBlast.com that the undeveloped land will be cultivated and that Tyson Ranch will be an "oasis". The Blast said 20 acres of the land will be set aside as a cultivation facility that "will allow master growers to have maximum control of their environment". The resort will also host a school created to educate growers on the best techniques for cultivating their own strains of cannabis. There will also be an "edible factory", an amphitheater, and an area for attendees to camp in glamorous style, or "glamping".

Tyson is reportedly a believer in the medicinal and healing qualities of marijuana. The website pointed out that the ranch is located near Edwards Air Force Base.

Sounds like a knockout to us! Tyson Ranch will also be a place that looks to do some good.

Tyson has the support of two business partners, Robert Hickman and Jay Strommen, as well as California City mayor Jennifer Wood, who has described the ranch as a "rebirth" for the city.

The facility, unofficially titled Tyson Ranch, was uncovered on the same day the state of California celebrated the legalisation of marijuana as of January 1.

Los Angeles and other nearby cities outside of West Hollywood have not finalized their local permitting rules so licenses to businesses in those jurisdictions are yet to be granted.
