Bankrupt and retired boxer Mike Tyson smokes bhang worth 4 million a month

Former American professional boxer Mike Tyson is certainly enjoying his retirement by smoking lots of weed.


According to CNN, 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. “Is it $40,000 a month? It’s $40, yeah, $40,000 a month.” Which is about 4 million in Kenyan shillings. “We smoke 10 tons of weed (about 9kgs)  at 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.

In Kenya, despite the many calls to legalize the herb by politicians and celebrities alike, bhang or weed as is popularly referred to still remains an illegal substance.

According to the World Drug Report, marijuana is the most widely used drug – 3.9 per cent of people aged 15 to 64 used it at least once in 2016 with the majority of increased use in recent years was recorded in Africa and Asia.
