Speaking on Theo Von’s ‘This Past Weekend’ podcast he said,
“It’s funny, I got so high with Mike [Tyson], we’re partners in the cannabis business.”
“I got so high with Mike one night in the Hamptons that I went into what’s called a cannabis coma. I actually thought I died; I said to myself, and they brought me back to my room, and I’m in there, and I thought, I mean I wasn’t aware of anything. I kept asking people to touch [points to his teeth], like you do when you think you’ve been hurt.
“People were squeezing my hand, but I’d be talking to them. But they wouldn’t talk back to me. I was like on a delayed process, and I said to myself, ‘Did I die? Did I just die?’ Because I feel like I did when I was in a coma, but I could think. I don’t think I could think when I was in my coma. That’s the way I was talking to myself.”
“All I could think of was what I possibly could have done wrong. I just hadn’t done enough [weed]. But I practiced every time I knew I’m gonna see Mike. I’m about a three or four hit guy. I just said, ‘I’m gonna smoke as much as you right now, brother.”
