Malawi Asks Former Boxer Mike Tyson To Be Their Marijuana Ambassador

The government of Malawi has asked former boxing legend, Mike Tyson to become the official ambassador for the country’s marijuana crop.Tyson, a former world heavyweight champion, is an entrepreneur and has invested in a cannabis farm in the US.

Agriculture Minister Lobin Low sent a letter to Tyson inviting him to take up the role, and said legalisation in Malawi had created new opportunities for the sale and distribution of Marijuana.

But the move has been criticised by some as the former boxer was imprisoned for sex offences in the 1990s. Malawi legalised the growing and processing of cannabis for medicinal use last year, but stopped short of legalising it for personal use.

The country’s agriculture ministry has encouraged farmers to grow cannabis for medicinal purposes as well as hemp for industrial use. Tyson has said smoking cannabis helped improve his mental health and turn his life around. Some studies, however, have suggested smoking potent cannabis can increase your risk of serious mental illness.
