“Ain’t that crazy? That is crazy shit, suitable? We take it for granted”
Mike Tyson has revealed that he smokes $40,000 (£33,000) of marijuana just about every month.
The former boxer, who earlier this year hosted a cannabis-themed music festival in California, revealed the revelation in the most current episode of his podcast, Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, featuring rapper Jim Jones, which you can watch beneath. “What do we smoke a month?” Tyson asked his co-host Eben Britton. “Is it $40,000 a month?”
“Oh, I do not know,” replied Britton, himself a former pro athlete. “We smoke ten tons of weed a month at the ranch.”
“$40 grand,” continued Tyson.“Ain’t that crazy? That is crazy shit, suitable? We take it for granted.”
Tyson, who runs a 420 acre cannabis ranch in California, also revealed that it will quickly serve as a weed-themed resort open to the public.
He added: “We’re going to make this an oasis in the fucking desert, man. We’re gonna have golfing shit there. Cannabis friendly, my buddy. One particular acre-lengthy lazy river, wave pools you can fucking surf … you can surf up there. We’re going to have like 100 chateaus exactly where you can bring your broad, you can bring your family members, you can lay out and you will not even know you are in California. You will assume you are in the Bahamas someplace.”
Tyson previously opened up about the death of Tupac throughout an emotional interview. The legendary rapper was shot 4 occasions in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996. He was rushed to hospital, but died six days later on September 13. He was 25.
Throughout the interview, Tyson was reminded that Tupac attended his bout with Bruce Seldon at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on the evening that the rapper was later fatally shot.
“[Tupac] was seriously delighted following the fight,” Tyson recounted by way of tears. “He came to a press conference with me. We was just speaking a bunch of shit. I went house and then he left.”
The former boxer then revealed that he wasn’t permitted to see Tupac following he was rushed to hospital following the shooting.
“It’s pretty hard to speak about,” Tyson stated about his memories of their friendship. “He was just a young kid, and he wanted to be terrific – and then that occurred.”
