Boxing legend Mike Tyson is still as popular as he was decades ago after an impress return out of retirement in 2020.

Tyson is also a vocal proponent of marijuana and speaking to Yahoo Finance, has revealed that he wishes he had smoked the plant his whole career.

The boxer was discussing the debut of his Tyson 2.0 cannabis line in partnership with Columbia Care and 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.”

He went on to say, “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.”

“I broke his cheek bone, his eye socket, his rib — I should have been doing this from the beginning. And I said, ‘Wow.’ I got fined for that, of course, but it was worth every bit of it,” Tyson said. He had credited psychedelics for his comeback. “I think of it as an enhancer. It makes me better, even in the ring. The punches don’t hurt as much, it has a lot to do with my comeback, the psychedelics.”
