The best advertisement for legalized pot EVER

In 2003,  Lamb and Lynx Gaede, 11-year-old twins were the white nationalist pop duo “Prussian Blue,” named after their blue eyes and the infamous chemical poison used to kill Jews and other enemies of the Nazi regime during World War II.

Today, the twins, aged 20, have renounced their lifelong teaching and according to Lamb, “My sister and I are pretty liberal now.”  The primary reason?  Pot. Mary Jane. Blunts. Spliffs. Wacky Weed.

One of the sisters, Lynx, contracted cancer at age 14, and after lots of different pain medications for her treatment, started using pot medicinally after getting a medical marijuana card.  Lamb, who had scoliosis and chronic back pain aquired a card as well, and it led to the dawning of the age of Aquarius.

They said the drug has reignited their creativity, which they now channel in other ways, such as painting.

‘We just want to come from a place of love and light,’ Lamb said, adding, ‘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 can’t think of a better reason to legalize pot than that it would have the effect of reversing years of radical indoctrination for some users, and while we’re at it, we can tax the shit out of it.  Even Oklahoma has bills in the legislature to legalize the sale, possession, and use of pot that stand a fair chance of passing due to the potential tax revenue.  We’ll go down fighting on gay rights, but we’ll do it with red eyes and a case of the munchies.

    hmmmm… The twins need to read a few history books..

    Asked whether the Holocaust happened, Lynx replied, ‘I think certain things happened. I think a lot of the stories got misconstrued. I mean, yeah, Hitler wasn’t the best, but Stalin wasn’t, Churchill wasn’t. I disagree with everybody at that time.’ Lamb added: ‘I just think everyone needs to frickin’ get over it. That’s what I think.’

    Want to make prison violence go away? Hand out joints at every meal. Bang! Just like that prison violence would significantly decrease if it didn’t disappear. Of course, we would have to increase the Cheetos budget.

    I’d be curious to hear what their parent’s say about this.
    After all, these twins weren’t born racist @$$holes.
    Are their parent’s fuming?
    Or did they have a change, due to their daughter’s change?

    I understand that this is a serious thing, but I just smiled and chortled when I read that. I hope the bills pass. Oklahoma is closer to me than Colorado. I am free to mention this as I am now retired from the nuclear business.

    If the twins were aged 11 in the year 2003, they would be aged either 21 or 22 in the year 2014. They would not be 20 years old.

    I would think that free-flowing pot is likely to make at least as many paranoids as it does peace, love, and joy “healers”. And heightened paranoia in all those gun fetishists in CO and OK is not likely to have a good outcome.

    An old friend, Ed Brecher, looked at this question a long time ago. Here is a copy of his report available via Powell’s. (I see that this particular copy is “heavily underlined”…)

    PS: I should say that your question is covered in one chapter (“58: Can marijuana replace alcohol?”); the rest of the book addresses other questions.

    I have that problem too, sometimes, at least on my feet. Get an old pair of socks, and when you go to bed slather Vaseline on your feet, then put the socks on and wear them all night. You may need to repeat this for several nights if your feet are really bad. But it is amazingly good at helping them heal up.

    If you can get a big tube of Polysporin, that might be even better, but the Vaseline will work.

    The Swastika is an ancient symbol, which unfortunately got co-opted by Nazi’s.

    If there’s a symbol out there that’s about “heritage not hate”, I think the Swastika should be on the list because none of the people – Hindus and Buddhists, mostly – who have Swastikas as part of their heritage had anything to do with Nazi’s and would not be eligible to be part of the Master Race because of high melanin content in their epidermis.

    There are swastikas all over Southern California — this pond in Pasadena was built in 1906.

    Many people don’t realize that the Nazis hijacked an existing symbol that was familiar to a lot of people to create their flags, but frankly that’s pretty much how they always operated — steal stuff from other people and claim it was yours all along.

    The Aveeno Eczema Care cream is also really good. It won’t get rid of existing eczema for me (prescription cream seems to be the only thing that will do that), but it doesn’t irritate the skin and keeps the lesions from returning once the prescription cream gets them to leave.

    Laertes says:


    I’ve heard many people say that many people don’t know the history of the swastika. I’ve never met anyone who didn’t know the history of the swastika. I think everyone likes thinking they’re smarter than everyone else, and it flatters one’s ego to imagine that one knows something that many others don’t know, so people are ready to believe that some widely-known fact isn’t nearly so widely-known.

    @gene108: Marijuana. The line “Have you ever look at…” is a play on how stoned people are supposed to talk. I don’t remember ever saying that, but then I wouldn’t would I?

    There are swastikas in the tiles on the walls of the Men’s Gymnasium at Indian University. I remember seeing them when I went there as a kid for swimming lessons. When I went back there last year, they had put up a sign explaining them. The building went up in 1917.

    Lamb, now a hotel maid who lives nearby, echoed: ‘I was just spouting a lot of knowledge that I had no idea what I was saying.


    Lamb and Lynx said enrolling in public school and moving to northwest Montana has helped them become more open-minded.

    Not to be nutpicking (yeah, yeah), but Prussian Blue is NOT an “infamous chemical used by the Nazis”. It’s a frickin’ pretty blue dye used by machinists to paint a metal piece before scribing lines showing them where to machine it. Used it plenty back in them “old days”, hope it’s not toxic.

  72. 72
    Arclite says:

    @Ken deFarmer: Ken, you’re right it’s not the chemical itself, that was Zyklon B. But Prussian blue residue sometimes forms after using Zyklon B, but not always. The lack of Prussian blue in some gas chambers is used as evidence by Holocaust deniers that it didn’t take place. The girls actually referenced it directly:

    “there is also the discussion of the lack of ‘Prussian Blue’ coloring (Zyklon B residue) in the so-called gas chambers in the concentration camps. We think it might make people question some of the inaccuracies of the ‘Holocaust’ myth.”

  73. 73
    Ken deFarmer says:

    @Arclite: Now THAT’s nutpicking! My tell to the deniers is this: My father was a CC liberator in the war. I don’t think I’ll ever forget the day he told me about what he saw.

    Raenelle says:

    @Mnemosyne: Because it’s also medicine. And it’s not nearly as harmful as alcohol or tobacco. It’s more like Tylenol . . . if Tylenol were non-toxic. Does Tylenol have a sin tax on it?

    Actually, until it becomes possible in this country to tax our rich people, I don’t really have the patience to mull over the advantages of any other taxes.

    If, to get pot legalized, we have to submit to a huge tax, it’s worth it. But don’t pretend to me that it’s the right thing to do in and of itself. Pot smokers–medical or recreational–are not the big tax balkers in this country. Once we’re back to taxing the riches around 70% or more, and once we’ve quit funding a military to go around the world to protect corporations–once those two are done, maybe it would be time to consider some “sin” taxes on the 99%.

    We had a neighbor, Don, who’s bull bred our milk cow. He was a serious Christian who enjoyed debating Bible verses with anyone.

    While we visited with him, he told us of being in the infantry in WW II and occupying a concentration camp. The look in his eyes was like he had been there yesterday! This was in about 1978 – 80, so at least 35 years after the events he was remembering.

    He told us that being just GIs they gave the survivors candy bars and other foods from their C-Rations, which in many cases killed the recipient, as they were too far gone for anything but warm broth.

    Once the medics caught up, they began to turn the situation around. I believe they killed as many prisoners with starvation and exposure as they did with the death camps.

    Don was pretty old back then, if he was still alive he would have to be 110. He went to the bank, gave them his deed to his farm they had the mortgage on, and said “See you later, I’m going to Florida!” He was a character, they don’t make them like that any more.
