With cannabis now becoming legal in California, that opens it up for celebrities to start pushing their favorite recreational drug.

Count Woody Harrelson out, as he's reportedly given up his longtime habit, but Mike Tyson is opening up a cannabis resort.

The first of the year, cannabis became legal in the state of California. It's being suggested that there will be celebrity endorsement deals and celebrity branding, that is once licensing issues are worked out. Certain known users, such as Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg, have already been marketing weed, and now the thought is that the celebrity pool could widen.

One celebrity looking to cash in here is former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson.

It's being reported that he and some partners broke ground last month on some land with the intention of building a cannabis resort in the Mojave Desert town of California City. It's about a 110-mile drive from Los Angeles.

Robert Hickman, one of his partners, explained that the undeveloped land there is primed for cultivation. The Tyson Ranch will become an oasis.

Mayor Jennifer Wood is appreciative of the business coming to her town and thanks Tyson in a video of the groundbreaking for his commitment to the area. She believes the industry will end up providing medical marijuana for needy individuals as well as revenue, jobs, and income.

Perhaps this will lead to more things like what was seen on CNN with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen on New Year's Eve. They were talking with a CNN correspondent Randi Kaye, who was in Colorado at a "Puff, Pass, and Paint Party." While the drug is legal there as well, Kaye was seen holding a joint but stopping just short of taking a hit. Also seen in the exchange is the focus on a giant bong called the Steamroller.

And this was all on CNN. Think of how much more mainstream it could become now that California is in on it as well.
