Mike Tyson Has a New Business, a 40-Acre Marijuana Farm

Tyson Ranch will be located in California City, a remote desert town 60 miles away from Death Valley.

Tyson will dedicate about 20 acres for cultivation facilities that "will allow master growers to have maximum control of their environment".

With recreational marijuana use now legal in Cali, 2018 is certainly looking very green on all fronts for Mike Tyson!

Medical marijuana has been legalised in the state of California for the past 20 years and Tyson's ranch will look to carry out research to help develop it's clinical benefits.

Partner Robert Hickman tells the website that the undeveloped lands are primed to be cultivated and that Tyson Ranch will be an oasis.

The facilities will also include a Tyson Cultivation School created to teach growers the latest methods in cannabis production.

Mike Tyson Starts Marijuana Empire With 'Tyson Ranch'

According to The Blast, the company which will run the ranch, Tyson Holistic, will focus on treating men and women who have suffered from psychological ailments during their military service.

Tyson played himself in the 2009 movie "The Hangover", and toured nationally in the one-man stage show "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth", throughout 2013, SFGate.com reported.

According to The Blast, the ranch will feature a hydro-feed plant and supply store, an extraction facility, an edible factory, premium "glamping" campgrounds and cabins, and an amphitheater. And that land, according to the Associated Press, is where the 51-year-old boxing icon is set to open Tyson Ranch, a field for growing, studying and advancing the utilization of marijuana.

He also said that not smoking with Tupac was one of the biggest regrets of his life.

The former heavyweight champion was fined in 2000 for testing positive for marijuana, and he said in his memoir that he got high before major fights. Tyson also said he used the drug when he was sentenced for cocaine possession in 2007.
