Mike Tyson, partners break ground on California marijuana ranch

Mike Tyson, partners break ground on California marijuana ranch

California mayor Jennifer Wood congratulated Tyson for his intention to build such a ranch, expressing his hope that many new jobs would be opened in the region.

He and business partners Robert Hickman and Jake Strommen broke ground December 20 on a 40-acre plot of land about 110 miles north of Los Angeles, according to the Associated Press.

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. Additionally, research will be done on how best to use and apply the healing properties of marijuana.

That's a lot already, but it doesn't even cover the growing.

Tyson will dedicate about 20 acres for cultivation facilities that "will allow master growers to have maximum control of their environment". However, Tyson Ranch will also include an "edible factory", a "premium glamping" camping ground, and a Tyson Cultivation School that will teach growers innovative ways to fine-tune their own strains.

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.

There's been no date given for the opening of the ranch, but when it does open, it looks like it's going to be an incredible facility.

Tyson was fined in 2000 for testing positive for marijuana, and he admitted in his memoir that he got high before major fights.
