Malawi’s agriculture ministry has written a letter to ex-world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson to be their ambassador for Malawi’s cannabis crop.
Malawi agriculture ministry Minister Lobin Lowe said last year’s legalisation of cannabis for Malawi has created opportunity locally and internationally.
The ministry said the United States Cannabis Association is helping to arrange the deal with Mike Tyson.
Malawi might not be able to go alone because the industry is complex and needs collaboration. I would therefore like to appoint you, Mike Tyson, as Malawi Cannabis’s Branch ambassador, “Malawi agriculture ministry Minister Lobin Lowe wrote.
Mike Tyson is also an entrepreneur and has invested well in a cannabis farm.
Local reporters reported that Mike Tyson was expected in Malawi last week, but they postponed his visit.
Malawian cannabis, which is popularly known by the name “Malawi Gold,” is considered by recreational smokers as one of the finest.
In October 2011, Mike Tyson launched a company called Tyson 2.0, a cannabis company that runs across the whole of the United States.
Mike Tyson once said that cannabis has played a better role in his life, and now, the popular boxer is re-entering the cannabis space with a new company that will be selling Tyson-approved weed products across the United States.
“I have never felt this healthy in my life. I have never felt this clear in my life,” Mike Tyson added.
Mike Tyson added that it was cannabis that brought major improvement to his mental and physical well-being, and he was happy to say he had never had any time when he was taking a few pills.
The heavyweight champion has gained respect because of his love for cannabis, and he said that the new company will bring different choices to customers who also like his creativity and taste for cannabis.
The new company, Tyson 2.0, will step up from Iron, his first cannabis brand, which offered different products including everything from his personal favourite, flower, to edibles, concentrates, beverages, and pre-rolls.
Mike Tyson will be the company’s chief brand officer and might be the chief product tester.
