    "We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month," Britton said.

    "Ain't that crazy?" Tyson asked. "We take it for granted."

    Rapper Jim Jones, who was a guest on the episode, was surprised.

    "That's a lot of weed," Jones said. "That's nonstop, every second weed right there."

    Tyson added that $400,000 to $500,000 a month goes toward his cannabis business, Tyson Ranch, which includes his recently announced CBD-enhanced drink line called DWiink. He and Britton are also in the process of building a 420-acre cannabis-friendly resort and wellness center in Desert Hot Springs, California.
