Mike Tyson opens marijuana farm in California

The Blast

Mike Tyson made huge waves with his cameos in the Hangover films, but now the world-champion boxer is trying his hand at a different drug of choice.

The business venture will seek to capitalize on the legalization of recreational pot in the Golden State, which went into effect on New Year's Day.

Tyson was joined by business partners Robert Hickman, Jay Strommen and City Mayor Jennifer Wood for the event.

That is why his ranch will also seek to advance research into the potential benefits of medicinal marijuana, specifically CBD.

Some were arrested on suspicion of blackmail, attempted murder, money laundering and other organised crime offences. The arrests took place in the states of Baden-Wuerttemberg, Hesse, Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia.

Hickman echoed Wood's sentiments and told The Blast that the "undeveloped lands" in California City "are primed to be cultivated".

Additionally, Tyson Holistic - which operates the ranch - makes a strong effort to employ men and women who have served in the armed forces.

California is expecting a marijuana boom with legalisation, and the mayor described the ranch as a "rebirth" for the city which will create needed jobs.

Along with luxurious corporate retreat facilities, The Blast reports the facility will also offer clients hands-on marijuana growing lessons taught by Tyson - helping budding growers to flawless their craft in the Tyson Cultivation School.

Tyson Ranch will also feature an extraction facility and edible manufacturer alongside luxury cabins and "glamping" (i.e. glamor camping) campgrounds and an amphitheater to entertain guests.

Tyson has a long public history with marijuana.

In his 2013 memoir, he admitted to getting high before major matches, often tricking official testers by using a fake penis with clean urine.

He also said that not smoking with Tupac was one of the biggest regrets of his life. In 2000, he was fined $200,000 after testing positive for weed after a fight in Detroit.
