Boxing legend Mike Tyson is said to be spending £34,000 a month on smoking weed, as health concerns surrounding ‘The Baddest Man on The Planet’ continues to grow. Tyson has been no stranger to enjoying marijuana, even opening a cannabis ranch in Southern California.
When discussing his love for the drug back in 2019 on his‘Hotboxin Podcast’ alongside former NFL star Eben Britton, he revealed his exponential weed spending whilst on his ranch. His £34,000 spending equates to 120 tonnes of weed per year.
His heavy smoking comes as Tyson continues to struggle with his health, after revealing he is nearing his ‘expiration date’ in recent weeks.
Speaking on his podcast last month, ‘Iron Mike’ said: “We’re all gonna die one day of course. Then, when I look in the mirror, I see those little spots on my face. I say, ‘wow. That means my expiration date is coming close, really soon.”
Five weeks on from his worrying comments, concerns surrounding his health and wellbeing grew even bigger after the boxing great was spotted in a wheelchair at Miami International Airport. Whilst sitting in his wheelchair, Tyson posed for pictures with fans as he made his way around the airport.
The reason for his support is said to be due to sciatica, a back and upper leg issue the former heavyweight champion of the world has struggled with for some time. Earlier last month, Tyson was also spotted needing aid whilst walking after using a cane when walking around New York.
Two years ago the boxing great also suffered from a similar episode and was left
bedridden for weeks. Playing down Tyson’s problems this time around though,a
source close to the American told TMZ: “It’s nothing serious, just an occupational
hazard for an athlete like Mike.”
