Mike Tyson's POT Empire To Include A 420-Acre Marijuana Vacation Resort
Mike Tyson is operating a holistic marijuana company, these days, and plans to open an over-the-top weed resort in the middle of the California desert.
The 52-year-old former world heavyweight champ created his company Tyson Holistic in 2016 and sells an array of marijuana merchandise as well as premium marijuana strains, extracts, and edibles.
But now the former fighter is developing a 420-acre marijuana playground near Desert Hot Springs that'll house a music festival and the world's longest lazy river.
The ranch broke ground in December 2017 but is yet to be fully built. It's designed to be a wonderland of weed with tourist attractions, a luxury hotel, glamping tents, a lazy river that will take a full hour to cross, and an ampitheater for music festivals and concerts. There will even be a Tyson University to teach cannabis-cultivation techniques to future farmers.
Following Tyson's boxing career he endured years of substance abuse and weed helped him come out of his rut.
Tyson says his vision is to educate and engage the public in the healing properties of cannabis and CBD.
Attendants will be allowed to smoke anywhere in the park, except for areas where liquor is sold. Weed will not be grown there, only sold, as Tyson partners with big marijuana retail companies.
