Hunter S. Thompson's Wife To Clone, Sell His Personal Weed


If you don't know who Hunter S. Thompson is, you are weird. But I'll give you an extremely fast reminder.

Hunter S. Thompson was a journalist and author who would get really messed up on drugs and write about America™.

Johnny Depp played him in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas."

And Bill Murray did in "Where the Buffalo Roam."

Johnny Depp was better.

He was bald™ and loved drugs and America so much.

If only he was around now, he would have seen his wildest, darkest acid trip made manifest in the political arena.

He loved drugs™. All drugs™. Including weed™. Because it is a drug™.

Anyway, now his widow, 11 years after his death, has decided to clone and replicate the late writer's personal weed strain.

She says she's found a legal way to extract the DNA and reproduce the exact strain, which she'll then sell.

His wife Anita posted about her effort to clone his weed on her Facebook, and people are losing it.

If she succeeds in producing it, there is little doubt that it will sell.

She explained that the proceeds from the weed would go to renovating Hunter S. Thompson's 42-acre Colorado property and turning it into a museum for the legendary journalist.

Colorado, if you had forgotten (you did not), is one of the states where recreational marijuana is completely legal. Because of that rarity, the plant provides a booming business to the state, and there is no better market to sell one of the most famous drug enthusiast's private stash.

No word as of yet if she'll try to reproduce his cocaine.
