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.

Cannabis cultivation has been legal in California since 2016 under certain circumstances. [Inman] — John O’Brien
