Mike Tyson Starts Marijuana Venture in California
He’s going high. The former heavyweight boxing champ is entering the pot business, having broken ground on a 40-acre property outside Death Valley. Half of Tyson Ranch will be used to grow newly legal cannabis plants, while the rest of the business, which aims to employ and support veterans, will feature a marijuana research facility, a cultivation school and a resort with its own edible pot products. California City’s mayor thanked Tyson, who’s chronicled his struggles with abuse and addiction in a one-man show, for investing in the community.
