The former heavyweight champion of the world is having an epic start to 2018.
According to The Blast, Mike Tyson is creating a cannabis resort, which “aims at not only producing high quality strains of THC and CBD, but also implementing cutting-edge technology to advance the research on the health benefits of marijuana.”
On Dec. 20, Tyson began building the resort in California City, which is a desert 60 miles southwest of Death Valley National Park.
‘Rebirth’ for city
Mayor Jennifer Wood and his business partners Robert Hickman and Jay Strommen joined him in a ground-breaking event. Marijuana is now legal in California.
The resort reportedly will include a cultivation school, extraction facility, amphitheater, hydro-feed plant and supply store, and much more.
According to The Blast, “The mayor describes the business venture as a ‘rebirth’ for the entire city.” The cannabis resort will reportedly create tons of jobs and give back to the community.
