$500k marijuana tycoon and boxing legend Mike Tyson brutally confesses consuming pot is “gonna destroy us”

Mike Tyson made a fortune as a boxer, movie star, and most recently as a speaker at various platforms, but his most recent reincarnation as a psychedelic dealer may have set him up for life. Since 2016, the former heavyweight champion, who is known for his devastating uppercuts, has started selling cannabis products under the Tyson Holistic brand.

56-year-old Mike Tyson reportedly earns around £500,000 each month from his company, which sells high-quality marijuana extracts, edibles, and strains. But that seems to be just the beginning. Tyson recently in the latest episode of his podcast ‘Hotboxin’ with guest Wiz Khalifa discussed marijuana use openly:

“We can’t stop it. It will run over us completely. It’s going to ruin us, declared Tyson. According to research, marijuana may be used medically to treat diseases like chronic pain and anxiety.

Well, that wasn’t the first time Tyson has talked about his experience with psychedelics, in a previous interview Tyson had talked about how marijuana changed his life and how he wishes he would have started it early,

“My life was just miserable, I was out of control. I was fighting with everybody. If someone asked me for an autograph, I’d punch them in the face. I was just a mess, and then after I retired, I started smoking,” Tyson said.

“What a mistake that was — I should have smoked my whole career. I should have smoked when I was fighting because it put me in this different state of mind. I’m very relaxed and the more relaxed you are, the better fighter you are at least in my case.”

Will Mike Tyson ever step in the ring again?

For all the people that seem to get excited even imagining Tyson in the ring again might be in for some disappointment. “No way! I’m not fighting nobody, I’m just chilling.” Back in 2020, “Iron Mike” donned his gloves once again as he squared off against fellow hall-of-Famer Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition fight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Being on the bad side of the 50s, Tyson seems to be in good shape. But it’s hard to imagine him donning the gloves again for an eight-ten round war.

Let’s hope that the former heavyweight champ can beat his addiction and move forward for a better-healthier life.
