Mike Tyson is claiming that psychedelic mushrooms saved his life.
During a recent interview, Tyson admitted that psychedelic mushrooms (magic mushrooms) "saved his life" when he was going through a dark period.
"To think where I was – almost suicidal – to this now. Isn't life a trip, man? It's amazing medicine, and people don't look at it from that perspective that it needs to be looked into," Tyson said on Logan Paul's podcast.
Mike ate 4g of magic mushrooms during the interview.
"I can't even tell you what mental issues I used to have. I was in the sick. Everyone thought I was crazy, I bit this guy's ear off," Tyson said in reference to his infamous 1997 fight against Evander Holyfield. "I did all this stuff, and once I got introduced to the shrooms …my whole life changed. I started boxing! Look at what I'm doing now."

He added, "If you put 10 people in a room that don't like each other and give them some psychedelics, they'll be taking pictures with each other. Put 10 people in a room who don't like each other and give them some liquor, and they'll be shooting everybody. That's real talk."
