He's right.

But one does have to wonder in this day and age, 'what the # took you so long to figure it out Gene'?


KISS legend Gene Simmons is a well-known anti-drugs guy, and an overall controversial character, who has spoken out against weed in the past. So, on a recent visit to Invictus MD, a publicly-traded Canadian cannabis producer and retailer, we were surprised to have a celebrity cameo from The Demon himself. Simmons professed that his views on cannabis have changed as of late, especially after joining Invictus as its Chief Evangelist Officer.

“I was one of those people who said cannabis is the same thing as heroin,” Simmons told High Times. “But it’s not! We’re told by researchers every single day that there is not only medical value in cannabis, but even miraculous results from cannabis-based products.”

Remember when Bush Sr. and Junior were in power, when Cannabis was evil and bad? No doubt due to the strangle hold on all things Media. The breaking dawn of the Nanny State, so carefully thought out for aeons before them.

It's good to see people using their intelligence to figure it out. Finally.

Is started with the Bush Presidents ?
How did ol Brother Bill feel about it ? Oh , wait , he did not inhale. I say he never exhaled....

But , you are under a political sway as that statement shows
I can produce many friends who went to jail WAAAAAYYYYY before the first Bush President....

Edit that post and delete the obvious political diatribe...
You are better than that.

That may very well be, however, music $ whore or not, What Gene Simmons is doing is good for the Cannabis Industry, rather than knocking it down and ignoring the benefits.

I know, he mentioned the $ aspect in the article as well. As with all Media sensationalists with millions in their pocket, atleast with this instance, it's provoking people to get outside the Cave and think for themselves,rather than follow. And it's due to his fame people will listen at all.

Gene can't help slapping the KISS label on everything so I expect KISS brand pipes, smoke and anything else big enough to put a decal on.

I've never been a KISS fan, it's just a post, that's what people on ATS do, they post stuff. But seriously, relax man don't take it so seriously.
