Boxing legend Mike Tyson continues to revel in the marijuana industry, now being pictured smoking a foot-long joint.
The former heavyweight world champion is the proud owner of a 40-acre ranch in California after breaking into the weed business last year. Tyson also will hold a weed-themed music festival on his ranch on Feb. 23 — though you will not be able to buy cannabis on site.
The 52-year-old has long been an advocate of the drug, and he took delight in passing a gigantic spliff at an event held by BREALTV recently.
Tyson, who recently claimed he was stoned when he fought against Andrew Golota in 2000, is taking advantage of the California legalization of recreational marijuana.
His ranch has 20 acres set aside for the growing of the plant, while he also has his own school — Tyson Cultivation School — to teach farmers how to grow and develop their strains.
The land is situated in California City to the southwest of Death Valley — with the town having a population of 15,000. The ranch also has its own amphitheater, complete with luxury camping area and cabins.
Tyson has linked up with business partners Jay Strommen and Robert Hickman and has the full support of the city’s mayor, Jennifer Wood.
Conor McGregor recently hailed Tyson’s strain “KO Kush” as “really nice” after the pair spent an evening together in Dublin in November.
