Legend has it that movie legend John Wayne smoked as many as a half a dozen packs of cigarettes a day. Now, a ranch once owned by the Duke could produce a different kind of smoke.

Wayne’s 2,000-acre California farm known as Rancho Pavoreal is up for sale, and it’s being marketed as a possible marijuana cultivation site, according to Inman.

The listing from Coldwell Banker‘s Tatiana Novick touts the Riverside County property’s ample space and three wells, and it suggests growing pot as a possible use for the land — along with wine cultivation, cattle raising and more.

Listed for $8 million, the ranch also includes a house decorated with memorabilia of Wayne, who died in 1979. It’s next to another ranch once owned by Walt Disney.
