(Newser) – Mike Tyson is getting high on his own supply. The retired boxer selling cannabis grown on his California ranch admitted to smoking $40,000 worth of the drug per month on a recent episode of the "Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson" podcast, per USA Today.

Britton chimed in: "We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month."
