Mike Tyson Sells and Smokes a LOT of Cannabis
by Dan Larkin.
Mike Tyson sells and smokes a LOT of cannabis. Yes, Mike Tyson the former heavyweight boxing champ, actor, and now canna-preneur is deep in the weeds these days. (pun intended)
Tyson is a polarizing figure. He’s served time for sexual assault. He has been arrested numerous times for a variety of charges. You may remember when he infamously bit off part of his opponent’s ear during a boxing match. His list of bad choices and erratic behavior goes on and on.
But that is all in the past for Tyson. He’s working hard now to turn the page and he’s focusing his time and energy on his passion for cannabis.
And when I say passion, I mean he LOVES the stuff. In fact, Tyson recently admitted on his podcast, “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson”, that he and his pals smoke $40,000 worth of cannabis every month.
“That’s a lot of weed. That’s nonstop, every second weed right there.”Rapper, Jim Jones, guest on Tyson’s podcast, referring to their smoking $40k of cannabis a month.
So how does a guy like Mike Tyson afford to smoke so much cannabis? Well, he sells a lot of it too. His brand, Tyson Ranch, sells $500,000 worth of cannabis products every month. Most of it is sold in California and Nevada.
Mike Tyson has a lot of cannabis plans.
He isn’t done with his big appetite for cannabis yet either. As we covered in CannabisIRL earlier this year, he’s planning on opening the Tyson Ranch mega-complex in the Palm Desert in California. It will be a 400-acre cannabis-friendly resort with hotel, stages, the world’s longest “lazy river” and more.
So, don’t worry too much about “Iron Mike” right now. He may be burning through the green at a pretty fast clip but he’s making money hand over fist. (again, all puns intended.)
