Mike Tyson To Host A Weed-Friendly Music Festival in The California Desert in 2019

Back in January of this year, Mike Tyson was 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.

Now, the former heavyweight boxing champion plans to host the Kind Music Festival at his yet to be opened Tyson Ranch Resort in February 2019. The festival is being described as “an all-ages music festival that embraces California’s updated cannabis regulations.”

Via The Root:

“Cannabis won’t actually be sold on the festival grounds when it debuts Feb. 23, but alcohol will, and people 21 and over are invited to bring their own weed to smoke if they so desire.

The festival will also feature food trucks; a “Chillville” section with 100 specialty bean bags; and a fun zone with inflatable rides, obstacle courses, mazes, bar area and a vendor village. The music lineup for the event is set to be announced on Jan. 2, and a portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Standing United, a nonprofit addiction and homeless charity.”

General admission and VIP tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. on Jan. 3.
