Chew this: Mike Tyson is unable to sell a new line of cannabis gummies in the state of Colorado in their current form.
The former boxing champion’s new edibles are shaped like ears with a bite, a reference to that time in 1997 when Tyson bit off Evander Holyfield’s ear during the WBA Heavyweight Championship.
Tyson’s cannabis company, Tyson 2.0, can’t sell ear-shaped edibles in Colorado due to state law prohibits marijuana edibles in the shape of humans, animals, fruits, or other images that may appeal to children.
Tyson 2.0 still plans to sell the edibles, but will change their shape from a “bitten ear” to the letter “T” before they debut in the Centennial State later this year.
Tyson has been in the pot business since 2016 and reportedly makes more than $653,000 a month, according to Marca.com.
