Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson talked about his new 420 acres ranch he’s building in California, and oh yeah, revealed he smokes $40,000 worth of pot every month –or about around ten tons of weed — on his Hotboxin’ podcast this week.

The so-called ‘Tyson Ranch ‘ will be a ‘playground for stoners’ Tyson explained. Featuring a lux hotel, a golf course and the longest lazy river in the world, there is no set date for an opening.

Among all the amenities is a planned Tyson University to teach cannabis-cultivation techniques to future farmers.

‘I thought about how much good I could do by helping people with cannabis. It was a no-brainer,’ Tyson said on the business venture to Cannabis Tech Today. 


Tyson credits pot with getting him off dangerous drugs.
