Recently, Hunter S. Thompson’s widow closed on a legal trust transfer of the 42-acre Woody Creek compound known as Owl Farm. It is where the famed writer lived from 1969-2005. The transfer gives his widow full control of the property. She also gained ownership rights to the “Gonzo” logo and her late husband’s likeness.
Hunter S. Thompson committed suicide at age 67. According to Aspen times, a trust was established before his death that allowed Anita to live on his Owl Farm property in Colorado. Unfortunately, it would be owned by the Gonzo Trust, “a legal entity overseen by his appointed attorneys and trustees”. Since the recent transaction, she is now able to create a cannabis strain that would represent her late husband.
“Since it became legal I get approached probably once a month by cannabis growers, dispensaries.” Thompson’s widow states in an interview. She goes on to say “I’ve had probably 10 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.”
Anita Thompson saved six different strains of marijuana that the famed writer once smoked. She is currently working with a company to grow “hybrids of them.” She eventually wants to flood dispensaries with the product.
