Mike Tyson and weed. Weed and Mike Tyson. Welcome to 2018, where recreational marijuana is legal in California.
2017 was a weird year. If the world ends in 2018, crumbles into it’s dust vortex, you will find us escaping to Tyson’s brand new cannabis resort in California City. Where is California City and why is Tyson investing into Cali’s new Green Rush of weed based businesses?
Let our friends at The Blast provide some answers
“On December 20, the former Heavyweight Champ broke ground on a 40-acre plot of land in California City, a remote desert about 60 miles southwest of Death Valley National Park. He was joined by business partners Robert Hickman, Jay Strommen and also city mayor Jennifer Wood.”
Okay, that’s where it is. Go on.
“Along with growing high-grade cannabis, Tyson Ranch will feature:
* Hydro-feed plant and supply store
* Extraction facility
* Edible factory
* Premium “glamping” campgrounds and cabins
“Tyson has been a longtime believer in the healing properties of marijuana, and his ranch will work to improve the medical research and treatment of the plant. CBD — a cannabis compound with no psychoactive properties — has been proven as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant and antipsychotic agent. It has been used to treat PTSD, as well.”
We are here for Mike Tyson and his slow transformation into his characters from Punch Out, The Hangover and Mike Tyson Mysteries but on a shit ton of weed.
