Hunter S. Thompson was a tremendous counterculture author, most popularly known for living and recording as-it-happened ‘Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas‘ in 1971.
Hunter’s widow, Anita Thompson, purchased Owl Farm, his 42-acre fortified compound in Woody Creek, Colorado for $3.7 million dollars.
Owl Farm will be opening in late 2017 as a museum and writers retreat.
Hunter was a well-known toker who had an excellent stash of dope at all times and Anita saved some of his marijuana, cloned some hybrid strains and will be selling it in Colorado under her brand name “Gonzo“.
“I have found a legal method to extract the DNA from Hunter’s personal marijuana and hashish that I saved for 12-15 years,” she said on Facebook, “I am in the process of making the strains available to those who would like to enjoy the authentic Gonzo strains in legal states.”
