Say What? Mike Tyson Breaks Ground For A 40-Acre Marijuana Resort In California
Former boxing professional champion, Michael Gerald Tyson, also known as Mike Tyson, has broken ground on a 40-acre land to be used as a marijuana resort in California.
According to The Blast, a U.S news outlet, Tyson broke ground for the “Tyson Ranch” in California alongside business partners Robert Hickman, Jay Strommen and the city mayor, Jennifer Wood, on Dec 20. The resort is located in a desert, 60 miles southwest of Death Valley National Park.
The Blast says that although they hope to research on the healing properties of marijuana, 20 acres will be dedicated to growing the plant while the rest will contain an amphitheater, an extraction facility, campgrounds, edible factory and a supply store. There are also plans to open a Tyson Cultivation School to teach people how to be master growers.
California legalized the sale of non-medical marijuana on January 1 making it the 29th state to put the marijuana law into effect.
It is expected that the ranch will create a lot of job opportunities for the state.
