Former neo-Nazi band: Marijuana changed us to ‘peace-loving hippies’
Two blue-eyed, blonde-haired twins who were members a neo-Nazi band at the age of 11 now credit medical marijuana with turning them into “peace-loving hippies.”
Lamb and Lynx Gaede, who created the band Prussian Blue in 2003, told the Daily Mirror that they now both had medical marijuana cards and are “pretty liberal now.”
“I’m stoked that we have so many different cultures,” Lynx explained. “‘I think it’s amazing and it makes me proud of humanity every day that we have so many different places and people.”
Lynx began smoking weed about two years ago after she was diagnosed with cancer and doctors removed a tumor from her shoulder.
“I have to say, marijuana saved my life,” she said. “I would probably be dead if I didn’t have it.”
Lamb also acquired a medical marijuana card to help her cope with emotional stress from scoliosis and chronic back pain.
“We just want to come from a place of love and light,” Lamb told the paper. “I think we’re meant to do something more – we’re healers. We just want to exert the most love and positivity we can.”
“I’m glad we were in a band, but I think we should have been pushed toward something a little more mainstream and easier for us to handle than being front-men for a belief system that we didn’t even completely understand at that time,” she said.
During a 2005 interview with ABC’s Cynthia McFadden, the girls said that Adolf Hitler was a great man who had “a lot of great ideas.” Their band name, Prussian Blue, was a reference not only to the color of their eyes, but also to lack of Prussian blue residue found in Nazi gas chambers that Holocaust deniers point to as evidence that 8 million Jews were never exterminated.
But Lynx still pauses when asked if the Holocaust was real.
“I think certain things happened. I think a lot of the stories got misconstrued,” she said. “I mean, yeah, Hitler wasn’t the best, but Stalin wasn’t, Churchill wasn’t.”
“I just think everyone needs to frickin’ get over it!” Lamb added.
