Mike Tyson’s ear-shaped weed gummies won’t be coming to at least one state in the United States.
Tyson hoped to sell ear-shaped gummies, but Colorado is banning them because of their current form.
“A 2016 state law prohibits marijuana edibles from being shaped like humans, animals, fruit, or other objects that could attract children, and according to the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division, Holyfield’s chomped ear is just too damn attractive. The vegan, ear-shaped edibles are “directly applicable” to the law banning human body part shapes, according to MED communications director Shannon Gray.”
Because of that law, Mike Bites will be manufactured in the shape of a “T” in Colorado, according to Tyson 2.0. The 55-year-old has been selling cannabis products since 2016 through his Tyson Holistic label.
Tyson is also building a 418-acre weed-themed holiday resort he hopes will be home to a music festival to rival Coachella, as well as the world’s longest lazy river.
Back in 2020, Tyson gave fans a thrill when he jumped back into the ring to fight Roy Jones Jr. as they showcased their skills over eight, two-minute rounds. It was an exhibition boxing match, so no winner was announced.
