Mike Tyson Is Opening a Giant Pot Farm and Resort

Mike Tyson Is Opening a Giant Pot Farm and Resort

Mike Tyson is going green - as in a 40-acre cannabis farm, taking advantage of California's new law legalizing the recreational use of marijuana, SFGate.com reported.

Aside from business, the former Heavyweight Champ believes in the healing properties of weed, and how its compound CBD (cannabidiol) reportedly acts as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, and antipsychotic agent that has been used to treat PTSD.

In addition to the above, the resort will feature high-end camping and cabin facilities, an amphitheater, hydro-feed plant and an edible factory.

California City Mayor Jennifer Wood personally thanked Tyson for his "commitment to the community" and said that the industry "will provide medicinal marijuana to people in need" as well as providing "revenue and jobs" to residents.

California is the sixth U.S. state to legalize medical marijuana for recreational use.

But whether or not Tyson Ranch really takes off probably depends on a whole fuckload of regulatory statutes and the usual dealings with general contractors and greedy government fingers.

Tyson Holistic, the company that owns the cannabis resort, employs mainly veterans and says that taking care of those who have served in the military is a top priority.

Tyson has been a long-time user of marijuana.

Mike Tyson has his sights set on conquering the legal marijuana market.

He tested positive for marijuana following a 2000 win over Andrew Golota, a decision that was later changed to "no contest".

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.
