The ranch will include about 20 acres for marijuana cultivation by what The Blast called "master growers".

California is the sixth USA state to legalize medical marijuana for recreational use. Jennifer Wood, California City's mayor, said the ranch will be a "rebirth" for her town at its groundbreaking last fall.

He is also supporting former members of the armed forces with the operating company, Tyson Holistic, employing mainly veterans.

The Tyson Ranch stands to make quite a fortune if current trends continue. But The Blast's Gary Trock reported on January 1, the day California legalized recreational weed, that the future attraction is also set to feature a supply store, an "edible factory", a campground and an amphitheater. The law change comes into effect today and it will see dozens of newly licensed stores open for business up and down the state catering to adults who enjoy the drug for its psychoactive effects. In 2000, he was fined $200,000 after testing positive for weed after a fight in Detroit.

He also said he was using marijuana when he was busted for cocaine possession in 2007, a crime for which he was sentenced just 24 hours in jail.
