Mike Tyson’s monthly expenses are outrageous.
On the latest episode of the Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson podcast, the champ sat down with Dipset capo Jim Jones. Like the previous installments, the conversation takes twists leading to Tyson revealing little known aspects of his life. This conversation’s fun fact was how much Tyson spends on weed.
“What do we smoke a month?” Tyson asked his co-host and former NFL player, Eben Britton, at the interview’s three-minute mark. “Is it $40,000 a month? Oh, I don’t know,” Britton replied. “We smoke ten tons of weed a month at the ranch.”
The “ranch” Britton and Tyson are referring to is Iron Mike’s 420 acre California marijuana farm. Tyson broke ground on the plot in California City, California in December of 2018.
The goal is to turn the area into a cannabis farm and resort which will be open to the public in 2020. Currently it’s a functioning farm that produces THC and CBD products as well as nine strains of cannabis. According to Tyson, this output more than recoups the money he spends on weed.
“But we’re throwing out to the dispensaries 500 [thousand] a month. Between 400-500 [thousand] a month,” Tyson said.
Mike Tyson has been a longtime cannabis user and supporter. He claims he first started smoking weed when he was around 10 years old and has kept up with it throughout his life.
