Mike Tyson Opening 40-Acre Marijuana Farm In California

SiriusXM's Entertainment Weekly Radio Channel Broadcasts From Comic-Con 2015

Mike Tyson at one point during the height of his boxing career was worth upwards of $300 million until he declared bankruptcy in 2003. Since his retirement, he’s appeared in several movies and has went from being one of the most feared men on Earth to….still being one of the most feared men on Earth but also loved as well.

The former boxing champ is now looking to cash in on the legalization of recreational marijuana in California when he broke ground on a 40-acre plot of land in California City. The land will be used primarily to produce high-quality strains of THC and CBD and conduct research on the health benefits of marijuana, according to Gary Trock of The Blast.

He was joined by business partners Robert HickmanJay Strommen and also city mayor Jennifer Wood.

Hickman tells The Blast that the “Undeveloped lands are primed to be cultivated” and Tyson Ranch will be an oasis in the desert.

California City is expecting a big boom in cannabis production and development as the “Green Rush” hits California now that marijuana is officially legal as of midnight.

We’re told Tyson Ranch will be dedicating 20 acres of their land for cultivation facilities that “will allow master growers to have maximum control of their environment.”  There will also be a Tyson Cultivation School to teach growers the latest and greatest ways to perfect their own strains.

Along with growing high-grade cannabis, Tyson Ranch will feature:

  • Hydro-feed plant and supply store
  • Extraction facility
  • Edible factory
  • Premium “glamping” campgrounds and cabins
  • Amphitheater
