Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson acknowledged that he spends $40,000 (£33,000) every month on marijuana.
In a 2019 interview with former NFL player and co-host of the Hotboxin’ podcast Eben Britton, Tyson disclosed that he spends roughly $40,000 per month on marijuana at his ranch in Southern California.
This equates to about 120 tonnes of weed annually. Then Iron Mike asks, “Is that crazy?,” and the show’s guest, rapper Jim Jones, can’t believe what he’s hearing.
Fans won’t be shocked by Tyson’s drug use, though.
The former boxer established his own cannabis company, Tyson Ranch, in Southern California in 2015.
From a $44 million (£35 million) house in Desert Hot Springs, Tyson is lawfully cultivating his own marijuana.
An LA-based luxury real estate developer, with whom Tyson partnered to realise his “dream,” actually owns the marijuana resort.
On Twitter, fans have responded to Tyson’s confession with a range of diverse viewpoints.
“As he should. Along with the shrooms,” one comment read.
A second added: “My neighbour smokes weed worth 40 dollars and still gets high af lol.”
Meanwhile, a third questions the validity of Tyson’s claims: “This is 10,000% not true lmao.”
