Boxing legend and cannabis fanatic Mike Tyson has been enjoying the relaxing life during his retirement. While speaking on the Hotboxin’ podcast, as reported by The Mirror, Iron Mike revealed just how much weed he smokes each month.
He said: ”What do we smoke a month? Is it $40,000 (£33k) a month? It’s $40, yeah, $40,000 a month.”
Former NFL offensive tackle Eben Britton, Tyson’s co-host on the podcast, then revealed: ”We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month.”
The former world heavyweight champion owns a 40-acre cannabis ranch close to California’s Death Valley, which he decided to open after the US state legalised weed.
The 53-year-old has his own school for prospective weed growers at the ranch called ‘The Tyson Cultivation School”.
Tyson even admitted to smoking marijuana before he beat Andrew Golota in 2000, which he won after Golota failed to answer the bell for the third round.
Tyson scored a technical knockout, however, the decision was later changed to a no-contest after testing positive for the drug after the fight, Dailymail reported.
He says that he has taken cannabis all his life, but claims the Golota fight was the only time he had smoked weed and fought, saying it ‘didn’t affect me. It affected Golota.”
Tyson is a strong proponent of the positive effects of cannabis and is looking to advance the research into CBD, often used to treat inflammatory ailments.
