Mike Tyson has big plans for his marijuana ranch in California

The former boxing heavyweight champion broke ground last week on a facility in the California desert that will grow high-quality weed, it was reported on Tuesday.

The resort, which is named Tyson Ranch, is in Southern California, about 60 miles southwest of Death Valley National Park.

Tyson has been a cannabis advocate for years and is a big proponent of using cannabidiol (or CBD), which has the same non-hallucinogenic properties as marijuana, to help veterans who suffer from PTSD.

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.

California is the sixth U.S. state to legalize medical marijuana for recreational use. The planned Tyson Cultivation School will teach prospective farmers how to develop their own strains and conduct research to develop its clinical uses. Tyson Ranch will also be a place that looks to do some good.

The Ranch will include a hydro-feed plant and supply store, extraction facility, an "edible" factory, an amphitheater and premium "glamping" campgrounds and cabins, according to

Tyson has a long public history with marijuana. This provided Tyson, and others, the opportunity to sell the drug legally with a license. And that land, according to the Associated Press, is where the 51-year-old boxing icon is set to open Tyson Ranch, a field for growing, studying and advancing the utilization of marijuana. In 2000, the former heavyweight champion was fined for testing positive for marijuana, and his technical knockout and win over Andrew Golota was changed to "no contest" after the test. Tyson has also said he was using marijuana back in 2007 when he was arrested for cocaine possession.
