    "Mike Tyson isn't shy about his love for marijuana.

    On Monday's episode of his podcast, aptly named "Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson," the former heavyweight champion shared just how much he spends on the psychoactive drug.

    "What do we smoke a month?" he asked his co-host, former NFL player turned marijuana advocate Eben Britton. "Is it $40,000 a month?"

    "We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month," Britton said, referencing Tyson Ranch, the boxer's forthcoming 40-acre marijuana farm and "resort.""

    Do they know how much weight a ton is? I don't believe you. Not up on my weed pricing but I don't think $40,000 is going to cover much more than 10 lbs.

    I have never done this. Is it more than $0.13 per ounce?

    I don't know. Were they talking about two different things? Like maybe Tyson was talking about how much he spends a month on his own personal habit and Britton was talking about how much the ranch produces currently or is expected to once it's fully up and running. Even then ten tons sounds like an awful lot.

    I believe the $40k was referencing just between Tyson and his co-host, not their entire ranch.

    Which still seems like a lot, but I don't smoke so I couldn't say for sure. Maybe it's quality over quantity?

    If they're spending $40k on weed I'd hate to see how much they're spending on Doritos and Oreos.

    Lol no way in hell. Let’s say they each smoke and absurd amount of 7gs a day each. That would still only be a pound a month. Roughly 3-5k

    I probably spend about $150/month on cannabis products which is more than I paid in rent my first year out of college. Probably about $50/month on those Outshine popsicles, typically Lemon but sometimes Lime, Grape, or Peach. The mouthfeel is exquisite.

    LOL at all the squares trying to hold the pot smokers accountable for their outlandish claims.

    I spend about $250/month and I'm a daily user. Something strange about 40k.

    Got a problem with that? Lol. They are really testing the claim that you can't OD on weed.
