No one is embracing the legalization of recreational marijuana in the Golden State quite like former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.

Along with two business partners, the boxer is opening Tyson Ranch, an eclectic escape covering 40 acres of land in California City, a desert town 110 miles north of Los Angeles. Half of the property will be dedicated for use by professional pot growers looking to cultivate new strains and researchers who want to know more about the medical benefits of marijuana. Tyson Ranch will also have glamping (that's glamorous camping) facilities, an edibles factory, an amphitheater, and an extraction area, USA Today reports. Tyson broke ground on the ranch in December.

Tyson's not the only one jumping on the pot bandwagon — notable cannabis enthusiast Snoop Dogg has partnered with fast food restaurant Jack in the Box to offer the Merry Munchie Meal. For just $4.20, stoners and those who eat like they are can enjoy a mix of onion rings and curly fries, two tacos, five mini churros, three chicken strips, and a drink. The only caveat is the meal can only be ordered from Jan. 18 to 25 at three Jack in the Box restaurants in Snoop Dogg's hometown of Long Beach, California.
