Mike Tyson has clearly never heard the adage that you aren't supposed to get high off your own supply, with the former heavyweight champion revealing how much weed he smokes every month.

Tyson is known as much for his smoking as his boxing these days, rehabilitating his previous public reputation by becoming the loveable podcast host of his 'Hotboxin' show.

As the shows title might suggest, the former world champion interviews all sorts of celebrities and stars from the world of sport, all with the studio full of smoke.

The 56-year-old, who has admitted he thinks he's close to his 'expiration date,' also owns his own cannabis company based in South California, known as Tyson Ranch, and it seems he's smoking a lot of what he's growing.


Speaking on his Hotboxin podcast back in 2019, to co-host and former NFL player Eben Britton, the former boxer claimed he smoked around $40,000 worth every month!

"What do we smoke a month?" he asked Britton, "Is it $40,000 a month?"

"We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month," the co-host replied.

"Is that crazy?" Tyson then asked.

"That's a lot of weed," rapper Jim Jones, who was the guest on the show, said, "That's nonstop, every second weed right there."

It is not the first time the American has come out with incredible revelations about his drug taking, even claiming he was on them during his comeback against Roy Jones Jr.

The former baddest man on the planet said he was on mushrooms back in November 2020, saying that being on them helped him improve his boxing.

According to Iron Mike, the shrooms meant he couldn't feel the punches coming from fellow former world champions Jones Jr during their exhibition fight.

But it wasn't just needing drugs when getting back in the ring for the first time in 15 years, Tyson also claimed that he needed to be high to even agree to doing it.

According to the Hangover star said that taking a psychedelic drug called 'toad' told him to once again take a fight.
