Mike Tyson’s ear-shaped gummies prohibited in Arkansas, Colorado September 14, 2022 By Griffin Coop Arkansas marijuana regulations have knocked out any chance of former boxer Mike Tyson’s ear-shaped edibles finding their way into Arkansas dispensaries. Tyson’s cannabis brand, Tyson 2.0, includes ear-shaped edibles under the name Mike Bites. The gummies, which come in raspberry and green apple flavors, have been banned in Colorado for being shaped like a human body part. The ear-shaped gummies would not be allowed in Arkansas either for similar reasons, according to Scott Hardin, spokesman for the state Alcoholic Beverage Control division, which regulates the marijuana industry. “Rule 14.2 states edibles may not take the shape of an animal, vehicle, person or character,” Hardin said via email. “An ear-shaped edible would not be allowed as a body part would fall under the overall “person” prohibition.” Tyson 2.0 carries a variety products, including pre-rolls (also not allowed in Arkansas but for different reasons) and flower. Tyson 2.0 can be found California, Washington, Illinois and other states, according the company website. In 1997, Tyson bit off part of opponent Evander Holyfield’s ear during a boxing match in Las Vegas. If you’d like to relive that infamous bout, here’s Sports Illustrated account of that July night in the MGM Garden Arena. Holyfield will not be getting a share of the profits of the ear-shaped edibles, according to a report in Black Enterprise.
