Boxer Mike Tyson to open a marijuana ranch for business

Tyson, known best for his boxing prowess, including becoming the youngest heavyweight champion in history, was fined $200,000 in 2000 after testing positive for marijuana.

According to, the former heavyweight champion and his business partners broke ground on a 40-acre plot for a cannabis resort in California City, Calif., on December 20. The only caveat is the meal can only be ordered from January 18 to 25 at three Jack in the Box restaurants in Snoop Dogg's hometown of Long Beach, California.

Mike Tyson is going green. The center will also focus on advancing research on the health benefits of marijuana. It has been used in the past to treat inflammatory ailments.

The complex will be 40 acres and its opening becomes a reality after days ago California allowed the use of marijuana for fun.

We're told the company that operates the ranch, Tyson Holistic, is comprised mainly of veterans, and says taking care of men and women who have served in the armed forces is a top priority.

The ranch's location not far from Edwards Air Force Base will make it easier to provide jobs to military vets.

Tyson, who has been vocal on his beliefs of the healing properties of Marijuana, began the resort's construction in a remote desert in California City, CA.

According to Fortune, sales of legal marijuana in North America approached $10billion in 2017, a 33-percent improvement over the previous year.
