Mike Tyson says he 'died' during first trip on psychedelic toad venom, has done it more than 50 times since
The former world champion boxer told The New York Post that he tried Sonoran Desert toad venom "as a dare."
Apparently Mike Tyson has adopted a new religion based on toads.
There is this toad in Mexico that produces venom that can be smoked and that causes people to go on "trips".
This is his testimony. Can I hear a good Amenribbit?
"I did it as a dare," The 55-year-old said. "I was doing heavy drugs like cocaine, so why not?
It's another dimension. Before I did the toad, I was a wreck. The toughest opponent I ever faced was myself. I had low self-esteem. People with big egos often have low self-esteem. We use our ego to subsidize that. The toad strips the ego."
Tyson continued: "I 'died' during my first trip. In my trips, I've seen that death is beautiful. Life and death both have to be beautiful, but death has a bad rep. The toad has taught me that I'm not going to be here forever. There's an expiration date."
The former heavyweight champion boxer said he has now used toad venom 53 times. Tyson added that his life turned around after using the drug. He lost 100 pounds in three months, started boxing again and reconnected with his wife and children.
"It has made me more creative and helps me focus," he said. "I'm more present as a businessman and entrepreneur. People see the difference [in me]. It speaks for itself. If you knew me in 1989 you knew a different person. My mind isn't sophisticated enough to fathom what happened, but life has improved. The toad's whole purpose is to reach your highest potential. I look at the world differently. We're all the same. Everything is love."
Yes friends, the toad is love
I'm fighting for psychedelics to become medicine you can buy over the counter," he told The New York Post. "I'm not finished. I want to do more. I want to be the best I can be in this field."
Won't you join Mike Tyson in his worship of the toad?
