Former heavy weight champion, Mike Tyson has revealed via his ‘Hotboxin’ podcast that he spends a whopping $40,000 on weed, popularly called wee or Abosam Tawa in Ghana every month.
As the controversial boxer enjoyed one roll of his favourite pastime, his co-host, former NFL player turned marijuana advocate Eben Britton asked him, “What do we smoke a month?” “Is it $40,000 a month?”
“We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month,” Britton said, referencing Mike Tyson’s 40-acre marijuana farm. To which Tyson replies “is that crazy?” “That’s a lot of weed,” he said. “That’s nonstop, every second weed right there.”
The former world heavyweight champion now owns a 40-acre cannabis ranch close to California’s Death Valley, which he opened after the US state legalized weed.
The 53-year-old is also reported to have his own school for prospective weed growers at the ranch called ‘The Tyson Cultivation School’.
