Mike Tyson breaks ground on Los Angeles area marijuana Resort

Mike Tyson breaks ground on Los Angeles area marijuana Resort

With recreational marijuana use now legal in Cali, 2018 is certainly looking very green on all fronts for Mike Tyson!

Wood is seen in video of a December 20 groundbreaking ceremony as calling the Tyson Ranch a potential "rebirth" for California City, which has a population of just over 14,000 and lies roughly 65 miles southwest of Death Valley National Park.

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

Partner Robert Hickman told the website that the undeveloped lands are primed to be cultivated and that Tyson Ranch will be an oasis. The company that will operate the ranch, Tyson Holistic, mostly employs veterans, since they believe "taking care of men and women who have served in the armed forces is a top priority".

The Tyson ranch will also have its own amphitheatre, complete with luxury camping area and cabins.

Trump's diatribe against Pakistan
USA troops in Afghanistan are being supplied with food and military equipment by the routes from Pakistan to Afghanistan. Washington believes that the Taliban and Haqqani Network are destabilising the region.

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.

Tyson has a long public history with marijuana.

"He always wanted me to smoke weed with him, and I never did it, and I wish I did", Tyson said during the phone interview. In his 2013 autobiography Undisputed Truth, the boxer wrote that he often fought under the influence of recreational drugs, including cannabis, and would even go so far as to use a prosthetic penis to fool official drug tests.

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. Now, when he looks back on the lost opportunity, he says: "That's my biggest regret".
