The practice of smoking toad venom, a mind-altering drug that has been compared to magic mushrooms and other hallucinogens, has been gaining traction among psychedelic users across the U.S., including Mike Tyson.
At Wonderland, a Miami conference dedicated to the psychedelics industry held this month, the 55-year-old boxing legend claimed he “died” during his “first trip” under the influence of toad venom.
The New York Post reported Tuesday Tyson said: “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.”
