So this is why Mike Tyson has calmed down so much in recent years. The former heavyweight champion is reportedly building a 418-acre marijuana resort in California.

After creating Tyson Holistic, which sells weed-related merchandise and premium marijuana strains, Tyson says building the Desert Hot Springs resort is the next natural step in his transformation from slugger to stoner. “I thought about how much good I could do by helping people with cannabis,” Tyson says. “It was a no brainer.”

The “wonderland of weed” is expected to feature a luxury hotel, a concert venue, the world’s longest “lazy river” and “Tyson University,” where aspiring weed farmers can learn the tricks of the trade. Of course, pot will be sold, and patrons will be allowed to smoke it wherever they want on the property. An opening date has not been set.

Would this venture do better if someone more associated with marijuana — like Snoop Dogg, for example — was connected to it?
