Renowned boxing legend, Mike Tyson, made a lot of money from his boxing career, acting in movies and other investments.
Well, Tyson who is a cannabis advocate recently revealed through a podcast that he spends more than R600 000 on the substance.
Cannabis has become a widespread business worldwide, end even now is South Africa too, since it was officially legalised last year.
While speaking with his fellow advocates Eben Britton and Jim Jones on his latest podcasts, Hot Boxin, Tyson said they spend over N14 million a month on cannabis.
“What do we smoke a month? It’s about $40,000?” Tyson asked during the podcast.
“We smoke ten tons of weed on the ranch a month,” Britton added.
The revelation came quite as a shocker to quite a number of people especially those from developing countries.
