Though the forefather of gonzo journalism, Hunter S. Thompson, has been dead for over a decade, we’re going to finally be able to fulfill our far-fetched fantasy of doing his drugs. The writer’s widow, Anita Thompson, is plotting to sell six different strains of weed that were saved from the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas author’s personal stash, Aspen Times reports.
“Since it became legal, I get approached probably once a month by cannabis growers, dispensaries,” Thompson, who now owns the writer’s old compound in Colorado, told Aspen Times. “I’ve had probably ten meetings in the last three years, and I always ended up saying no because it’s the same story every time: Somebody wants to slap Hunter’s name on their strain.”
