Boxing legend Mike Tyson has always been in news for all wrong reasons most of the time. From biting ear of Evander Holyfield to raping Desiree Washington, a contestant in the Miss Black America pageant, the American has had a stormy career full of controversies. According to the reports in the Sun the boxer was recently snapped smoking a foot-long joint in a marijuana event held by BREAL TV.
Tyson smoking a joint is not surprising as the former World Heavyweight Champion has got down to business straightaway after purchasing a 40-acre ranch in California after breaking into the marijuana business last year when California announced the legalisation of recreational marijuana.
The 52-year-old will hold a weed-themed music festival on his ranch on February 23.
According to reports in Ebony, Tyson’s ranch is located on a 40-acre land in California City, a town in the Mojave Desert just two hours outside of Los Angeles. The resort will produce high-quality THC and CBD products while supporting research on the health benefits of cannabis.
The ranch also has its own amphitheater, complete with luxury camping area and cabins. It will also dedicate 20 acres of land to marijuana cultivation. There will also be a Tyson Cultivation School to teach growers the ins-and-outs of perfecting their own strains.
In November, Tyson had met boxer Conor McGregor where both the fighters enjoyed “KO Kush”, the marijuana Tyson grows on his own ranch in America.
