Located in the Mojave desert, the aptly named Tyson Ranch, will be a place where folks can come together to use cannabis and learn about the different ways that it can be used to heal the body. The tough as nails pugilist is no stranger to marijuana as he claims that he has been using it for many years to deal with the nagging injuries he sustained during his storied career in the ring.

Anthony Bourdain, The Food TV Personality that Often Featured Cannabis Dies At 61
Some very sad news, world famous chef, author, and travel show host, Anthony Bourdain, was found dead in Paris on Friday from an apparent suicide. The host of shows such as No Reservations and The Layover who was in the city shooting his latest episode of the CNN series Parts Unknown was found dead in his hotel room at the age of 61. Bourdain was no stranger to “illicit” substances, having been very candid about his past drug use and sometimes even focusing entire segments of his programs to the different ways that cannabis is being used around the world. From covering how hashish is an important part of the culture in Morocco to learning more about bhang in India, Bourdain never shied away from showing us more about cannabis use than the networks wanted him to. He shall be greatly missed.
John Mayer and Andy Cohen Talk About Who They have Smoked Weed With
On a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen singer and songwriter John Mayer dropped in. The pair candidly talked about the many celebrities that they have smoked weed with in the past. Some notable names include Game Of Thrones author George R. R. Martin and legend Willie Nelson. While we are not surprised that Willie and Snoop made the list, Martin’s inclusion comes as a bit of a shock since his marijuana use isn’t very well known. Maybe if they gave the man a strong sativa, he would be able to finish The Winds Of Winter sometime this millennia!
