Mike Tyson has been growing his own marijuana on a huge pot ranch in the California desert, and apparently the former boxing champ isn’t afraid to challenge that age-old adage about not getting high on your own supply.

Iron Mike, who previously cemented his heavyweed champ status by smoking a foot-long joint with Cypress Hill rapper B-Real, recently claimed that he and his pals smoke about $40,000 worth of weed every month at Tyson Ranch. 


In this smoke-filled Instagram video of a recent episode of his Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast, Tyson makes the outlandish claim only to be one-upped by his  co-host Eben Britton, a former NFL offensive lineman, who estimates that they actually smoke “ten tons of weed a month on the ranch.” So either way, sounds like a lot of weed is being burned by Tyson and his crew. 

Tyson Ranch is currently used to grow the former boxer’s own strains of marijuana, which is being sold at dispensaries in California and Las Vegas. But there are also plans to develop the ranch into a luxury weed resort with hotel, a campground and classes on how to grow and cultivate your own pot strains.
