HEAVYWEIGHT

Mike Tyson Says He Smokes 'About' $40K of Marijuana Every Month

Mike Tyson is certainly enjoying his retirement.

Not only has the former boxer become an advocate for marijuana while hosting a podcast called Hot Boxin', but he also explained the extent of his marijuana use in the latest episode.

"What do we smoke a month?" Tyson asked his co-host, Eben Britton. He added, per The Source, "It's about $40,000 a month."

"We smoke ten tons of weed on the ranch a month," Britton said.

Tyson broke ground on a 40-acre ranch earlier this year to both grow marijuana and research the effects of the drug. The new company said on its website that it aims to create "Better Cannabis" for its customers.


However, it appears Tyson is getting high on his own supply.

It's unknown how many people are joining in on these sessions at his ranch, but $40,000 per month is still a lot of money to spend on marijuana. It's also a questionable use of money considering the 53-year-old has already gone bankrupt once despite earning $300 million in his boxing career.

Still, Tyson appears to be fully immersed in his new business.

At a high per ounce price ($300) that comes out to more than 4 ounces a day. If you roll a gram joint/blunt that’s 112 a day or one every 10-15 minutes or so (literally all 24 hours).

This writer/outlet obviously took something that was a jokey exaggeration (I’m sure they still smoke a whole lot) and tried to make it a thing.

And no, that doesn’t make the substance itself addictive.

Just emphasizing the point that he is growing not buying

as stated in reply 1

sounds like he just threw a number out there

based on how much 'we' smoke

I doubt 'we' are smoking close to 10lbs a month

Being a new brand, I'm going to assume he's looking at the cost of giving away product

I get the impression Mike is the celebrity endorser and mostly involved for use of his name recognition...not for day to day operations and probably doesn't know the numbers for the business operation

More directly to your point

There seems to be alot of pushback against beneficial claims made by the cannabis community

Definitely some harmful side effects to consider

But IRT Mike, you're talking about a guy that got punched in the head for a living and led a volatile personal life fueled by bad choices

i.e. if Mike is addicted to weed now, definitely not the worst thing for a guy who's endlessly been on the precipice of a tragedy

It’s not physically addicting tho.

All that said - obvious exaggeration.
