There will even be a Tyson University to teach cannabis-cultivation techniques to future farmers.

'It changed his life. He's the perfect person,' Tyson's business partner Rob Hickman said on their partnership in an interview with GQ.
In October the company had a full-fledged map plan for the elaborate ranch, however it's not clear just how much progress has been made.
Tyson - Vision - Public - Healing - Properties
Tyson says the vision is to educate and engage the public in the healing properties of cannabis and CBD.
Attendants will be allowed to smoke anywhere in the park, except for areas where liquor is sold. Weed will not be grown there, only sold, as Tyson partners...
