(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. "What do we smoke a month?" Tyson asked his business partner Eben Britton. "Is it $40,000 a month? It's 40, yeah, $40,000 a month." Britton chimed in: "We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month."

The 40-acre Tyson Ranch—which Tyson noted sells $500,000 in marijuana each month to dispensaries in Nevada and California—purports to offer customers "the best the plant has to offer in every single one of our products." Still, some are just a bit concerned with Tyson's dosage. According to Yahoo, "$40,000 is an insane amount to spend on marijuana each month—regardless of where it comes from or how many people Tyson has helping him smoke it."
