Legendary boxing star Mike Tyson has set up a 40 acre marijuana farm after the state of California voted to legalize the use of recreational marijuana across the state.
The 40 acre plot, located in the deserts of the US’ biggest and most populous state, would be utilized to produce “high quality strains of THC and CBD”, both derived from ‘weed’.
The Blast first reported the news and a representative for Tyson confirmed his involvement to the Rolling Stone. He is going into business with two others — Robert Hickman and Jay Strommen.
Known as ‘Iron’ during his legendary career, Tyson was undisputed heavyweight champion of the world at a very young age and only had his career derailed by problems outside the ring.
Marijuana is already a billion dollar industry across the states who have legalized its use in the U.S and Tyson could stand to make millions when the farm eventually goes fully operational.
