Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson’s secret plan to revolutionize the marijuana industry with a super one-stop pot-shop amusement park compound in California has been revealed.
The facility, unofficially titled “Tyson Ranch,” was revealed on the same day the state of California celebrated the legalization of marijuana Jan. 1.
The Blast reports Tyson’s 40-acre facility is set to become a marijuana mecca as California entrepreneurs rush to meet the so-called “Green Rush” of growing demand for cannabis in the state.
Tyson and business partners Robert Hickman and Jay Strommen are attempting to pull a rope-a-dope on their competition by providing a full preview of the vision they have for their facility.
Along with luxurious corporate retreat facilities, The Blast reports the facility will offer clients hands-on marijuana growing lessons taught by Tyson — helping budding growers to perfect their craft in the Tyson Cultivation School.
Promotion for the center has already begun with Tyson featured breaking ground on the building site near California City, a town with a population of 15,000 a two-hour drive north of Los Angeles.
The facility has the full support of California City Mayor Jennifer Wood, who was also pictured with Tyson at the announcement.
The mammoth compound reportedly will devote half its total site (20 acres) to cultivating marijuana in controlled climate conditions that co-founder Hickman says are “primed” to deliver high-quality strains of THC and CBD.
“[The facility] will allow master growers to have maximum control of their environment,” Hickman told The Blast.
The facility will also feature:
Luxurious camping and cabin facilities
Amphitheater for presentations
A hydro-feed plant and supply store
An extraction facility
An edible factory
A garden with water feature
