The widow of legendary journalist and hell-raiser Hunter S. Thompson is working on cloning the writer's personal marijuana stash so it can be sold on the mass market...."I am in the process of making the strains available to those who would like to enjoy the authentic Gonzo strains in legal states," she said in the post. "I am looking forward to making the authentic strains available in legal states to support the farm and the scholarships." ...

Anita Thompson, who took over ownership of her late husband's 42-acre Owl Farm property in Colorado this year, told the newspaper that proceeds from the sales would go towards renovating the property and turning into a private museum and writer's retreat.

Hunter S. Thompson's Widow Wants to Clone and Sell His Marijuana

Now if this is not "alternative" I don't know what is -- an alternative income source for alternative folks who love the greatest alternative to reality-in-journalism ever made, the truth-sojourner in [non-]fictional writer par excellence, Hunter S. Thompson.

I hope this pans out for his family and the museum in a fine way, because Hunter is a national deity now, and I personally (under the influence) believe I enjoy his witty, endlessly brilliant company on a regular basis. It's impossible not to wish his family well, as well those who get to experience the phylogenetic heritage of his (doubtless extensive) personal stash -- which means, withal, the presence of the disembodied man himself.

"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me."

"In a closed society where everybody's guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity."

-Hunter S Thompson


This man was an insane genius. I would smoke his strain.

Don't see how she's going to clone it unless she has some live specimens or seeds hanging around , although you could attach Hunter S. Thompson's name to any dank green and it would sell well so good luck to her.

I smoked his mind. Ever book he strained to publish was my meat for understanding the corrupt world in which we live.

Thanks Hunter

Read this book

Well I didn't want to say so. I'd smoke his brand -- and I'll bet she's got seeds, too -- any day, especially if I thought it helped his family and memory. Same as I will try anything organic from the Marley family these days, e.g. coffee and coconut oil. Hunter deserves to be a great brand, same as Paul Newman, but in a more...specific market, I guess.

Agreed, metonymically at least.

More literally put, 50% of Hunter was an insane genius with an ill temper. The other 50% was a sensitive sweetie, with an ill temper. The two sides traded places very, very rapidly.

He was something else. I love this video of him on Conan and how he keeps calling a gorilla a bear. I would've liked to have seen his exposé of 9-11.

The only problem with this I can see is this: MJ in legal states is strictly a cash business as no bank wants to get involved a federal racketeering case.

How to get a strain on a cash basis in another state? Bitcoin? PayPal? IDK.

That is my only problem with this. Otherwise, I will tell certain, uh, green thumbed individuals, about this!

He is my only hero. Fear and loathing in Las Vegas is my all-time favorite. Memorized damn near every line in the movie plus the special features are amazing.....

Who cares, HST is one of my idols but the genetics have reached popskull porportions anyway.

It's an industry where marketing BS and jargon has taken firm hold.

Well-spoken and true.

In my thinking, the "Gonzo" flagship should be, simply, a landrace sativa that has so little CBD and turpenes relative to THC such that passive inhalation should produce immediate galvanic skin response in the form of beads of sweat on the forehead, whereas intentional consumption should produce emotional instability followed by frenetic activity and strong verbalizations.

Bad craziness with a smile, in other words!

Or, one could convert part of the bud's THC to THC acetate, which makes for a ridiculously potent, long-lasting, paranoid, psychedelic high. One supremely worthy of the name Gonzo, and of Hunter's mug on the label.

The way to do that is discharge about 10,000 volts into the bud while it is heated to 300 degrees or so in an anoxic environment with gasified acetic acid all around it. I wonder if that's legal in Colorado. It tends to produce a fire, or even an explosion. Hunter would have loved it! But I can't share the precise method here, obviously. Not safe...no private messages either, please.

I would be a little nervous to sample the Hunter S. Thompson gonzo strain. Is it laced with lsd?

When my dad died I mixed his ashes in organic soil. His friends loved a strain called "Sweet Island Skunk". I know its not the proper way to create a new strain but that one plant I dubbed "Sweet Island Steve" and gave the flowers to his friends after harvest. It was a beautiful organic plant fed with compost tea, it tasted amazing. I got the idea from Woody Harelson doing the same thing for his dad.

...if she still has seeds from his collection and they're kept well, she'll be able to do it. Provided it wasn't hermie seeds or a clone only strain. There's a lot of celebrities trying to market their own strains, its really just that, marketing.

I loved Hunter. I would totally partake in his strains. Since I live in Maine I am legally able to as well!

If it doesn't have a review on Leafly that tells me what it does, I'm not buying (or... "donating"). My medical condition is not "failure to be high."

Yo, Woodie smoked his dad, who was a badass soldier for some nasty PTB once upon a time. That's exactly why I'll never smoke my dad. I already got enough of that s**t in me as it is already!

Well there's at least one possible cure for the likes of you. A diet high in Blueberries and Blue Dreams.
