Mike Tyson developing cannabis resort in California

Mike Tyson developing cannabis resort in California”

A separate Tyson venture, Tyson Holistic, has been tabbed to operate the ranch, Trock noted, and the former boxer has already filed for an "Iron Mike Genetics" trademark to be used in the facility's "work to improve the medical research and treatment of the plant".

Mike Tyson might be the most excited man in California now that the state has officially legalized the sale of recreational marijuana.

According to Gary Trock at The Blast, Tyson and his business partners Robert Hickman and Jay Strommen broke ground on what's being called a marijuana ranch on December 20.

Tyson's name, of course, will brand the resort nestled in Southern California: it will be known as "Tyson Ranch".

Twenty of the ranch's 40 acres will be handed over to master growers, who will have maximum control over their land and environment.

Mike Tyson is going green. The Blast says that there will be a plant supply store on the grounds, as well as an edibles factory, an extraction facility, an amphitheater and campgrounds and cabins for glamping (aka "glamour camping"). Tyson Ranch will also feature the Tyson Cultivation School created to teach marijuana growers the latest methods in cannabis production.

Beyond all of the research, teaching, growing and production that will happen at the ranch, there are even more benefits to the community Tyson Ranch will call home. In 2000 he was fined $200,000 by boxing authorities for testing positive for pot and in his memoirs he mentioned that he often used tricks to get around testing requirements.

He also said he was using marijuana when he was busted for cocaine possession in 2007, a crime for which he was sentenced just 24 hours in jail.
