Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, who is also a marijuana advocate, has spoken of his plans to help boost tourism in the Caribbean by developing a cannabis business there.

The 53-year-old boxing legend wants Antigua and Barbuda, which has a nice flow of tourists each year, to become a ‘powerhouse’ for the weed business.

Along with the cannabis farm, Tyson plans to build a luxury hotel and golf course for guests who will be allowed to use the weed products there during their stay.

The boxing legend also met with the prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Gaston Browne, to discuss plans for an annual cannabis conference starting in April 2020.

Tyson believes that the newly-offered marijuana industry will increase the growth of tourism and bring much-needed money to the region.
