Hunter S. Thompson’s widow said Sunday that she plans to clone and sell the famed writer’s marijuana stash in states where the drug is legal.

Anita Thompson wrote in a Facebook post that she had found a legal way to clone the DNA of marijuana that she has saved for than a decade since her husband’s death in 2005. “Although the the ‘drug lord’ phrase is silly as it doesn’t match my personality, I am looking forward to making the authentic strains available in legal states,” she wrote on Facebook.

Thompson said she will use proceeds from the sale at least in part to turn her husband’s 42-acre Colorado property into a museum and retreat for writers.
