On a current episode of his podcast, Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, Mike Tyson told rapper Jim Jones that he consumes about $40,000 of cannabis per month at Tyson Ranch, his future cannabis “resort.” As Jim’s thoughts is blown by this quantity, Eben Brriton, Tyson’s co-host, follows this up by saying that they smoke 10 tons of weed per month.

We contact bullshit. Let’s appear at the numbers.

How A great deal Weed Does $40,000 Purchase?

Let’s appear at that figure of $40,000. I reside in Washington, exactly where eighths of That Fire expense about $45 on typical. So by the numbers, that would be about nearly 900 eighths per month (if you broke it down to the usual retail worth of cannabis).

As a blunt/joint smoker, the eighths I get have a tendency to go speedily. An eighth is like three to four blunts. By my individual consumption, 900 eighths would add up to about two,700 blunts per month, which would be 90 blunts per day, which would be about 4 blunts per hour. And that is without having ever stopping, for an whole month.


Even on the costly side of issues (seeking at you, California), exactly where eighths could run for the hellacious $70, that would nonetheless break down to about 3 blunts per hour, nonstop, for a complete 30 straight days.

Solo, that would be absolutely not possible. With a Tyson Ranch complete of shoppers, really probable nonetheless, that smoke squad would have to actually sit there for an whole month and do absolutely nothing but face L’s all day and evening. No meals, no water, just doinks.

So either Mike is stretching the truth, or his group of weed-smoking superlungs are just reinforcing stoner boi stereotypes.

10 Tons of Weed in a Month

Now that we’ve established that $40,000 of cannabis in a month is technically probable, it is time to address the most absurd claim of all:

“We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month.” – Eben Britton, former NFL player and Mike’s co-host.


Beau Kilmer, co-director of RAND Drug Policy Analysis Center, told Leafly that on typical, the cannabis shoppers who smoke at least 21 days per month smoke about 1.six grams a day.

Ten tons of cannabis is 20,000 pounds, which equals 320,000 ounces, which equals a tiny more than 9,000,000 grams per month.

You do not have to be Ptolemy to see that this would be physically not possible. Even with 100,000 humans going to the ranch per month, this would come out to three grams per particular person per day, which would be double the aforementioned typical of consumption amongst men and women who smoke all the time. Not probable. And even if you appear at it from a grams standpoint of “Yeah, you can smoke three grams in a day effortlessly,” it would nonetheless be unlikely for Tyson Ranch to host 100,000 guests per month.

So in the finish, only a single truth remains: males lie, ladies lie, numbers do not.
