Mike Tyson Poses With Huge Bags Of Weed

It's no secret that Mike Tyson is a big fan of weed.

Back in his boxing heyday he was a fearsome beast in the ring; nowadays, he prefers to kick back and relax with a blunt or two.

In fact, the 55-year-old seemingly dabbles in more than just a couple, if his most recent Instagram post is to be believed.

Iron Mike can be seen at The Green Solution dispensary in Denver, Colorado, holding aloft massive bags of weed - which he described as 'a week's worth'.


Tyson now has his own cannabis line, Tyson 2.0, and he wishes the drug had become a bigger part of his life earlier.

In fact, he wishes he'd smoked it his whole career.

Speaking to Yahoo Finance in October, he said: "My life was just miserable, I was out of control. I was fighting with everybody. If someone asked me for an autograph, I'd punch them in the face.


"I was just a mess, and then after I retired, I started smoking. What a mistake that was - I should have smoked my whole career. I should have smoked when I was fighting because it put me in this different state of mind.

"I'm very relaxed and the more relaxed you are, the better fighter you are at least in my case."

He also credits psychedelic drugs with saving his life, which he said will 'never be the same again' since he started using the substances.


Speaking to Forbes in October, he explained: "You see how much my life changed five years ago? I was a junkie five years ago. I didn't even think I could survive. Then I got introduced to animal and plant medicine.

"Before you always read about me in the papers, doing something negative. Now, what happened to that guy? You don't see me partying anymore. That's not my life anymore.

"It's hard to really articulate it from my perspective, but psychedelics helped me assume my relationship with God.

"I don't use it for recreation, I'm not a recreational user.


"This stuff is only done from a spiritual perspective."

Tyson broke down in tears reflecting on just how much he's changed while speaking with fellow boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard on his Hotboxin' podcast last year.

In the candid heart-to-heart, he seemed to suggest he missed being the 'annihilator' old, yet he also seemed fearful of the return of his former self.


He said: "I'm working on being the art of humbleness [sic]. That's the reason I'm crying, 'cause I'm not that person no more, and I miss him.

"Sometimes I feel like a b**ch because I don't want that person to come out ... 'cause if he comes out hell is coming with him. And, it's not funny at all. It's not cool like I'm a tough guy. It's just that I hate that guy, I'm scared of him."
