Mike Tyson Breaks Ground on 40-Acre Marijuana Resort Destination in California

According to The Grio, January 2, 2019, former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is a contender in California’s burgeoning marijuana industry, breaking ground on a 40-acre ranch envisioned as a resort destination for growers and consumers of recreational pot. California legalized licensed medical marijuana use years ago, but on Jan. 1st, 2019, the state also legalized recreational marijuana, and Tyson is looking to become a major player. The Blast reports that Tyson, 51, broke ground on his Tyson Ranch Resort which is being advertised as a 412-acre entertainment complex, luxury gambling resort and cannabis research & design facility located in California City, a town in the Mojave Desert located about a two-hour drive from Los Angeles. Tyson Ranch is also a short drive from Edwards Air Force Base, and according to The Blast, “taking care of men and women who have served in the armed forces is a top priority” for Tyson Holistic, the company that will operate the Tyson Ranch resort. Tyson Ranch plans to produce high quality products including THC and CBD as well as supporting research on the health benefits of marijuana. The ranch will reportedly be broken down as follows: 20 acres will be used for the cultivation of marijuana by “master growers,” while the property will also feature facilities to train growers and those interested in the industry. In addition, the ranch will offer an “edibles factory,” an amphitheater and areas for “glamping,” according to The Washington Post.
