Probably one of the first times that I started swearing as an adolescent was when I found out who Prussian Blue were. The story, which I remember reading for the first time in Teen Vogue, seemed like the trolliest trolls trying to punk us: Eleven-year-old twins Lynx and Lamb Gaede wore smiley-face Hitler T-shirts and sang about death to the Jews and non-white people. These little Nazi monsters just kept grinning and spouting white supremacist lyrics.
It’s been almost a decade since we last encountered the girls, and thankfully they’ve finally seen the grievous error of their ways. But you have to laugh, because apparently the thing that has turned them to the light side of the Force… is weed. The Daily Mail caught up with Lamb and Lynx, who are now 20-year-old hippies and self-proclaimed “healers.” (Check the photo at the link; you won’t believe what they look like now.)
Both carry medical marijuana cards: Lynx because she had a cancerous tumor removed from her shoulder in her freshman year of high school and also suffers from something called “cyclic vomiting syndrome,” Lamb for her scoliosis and chronic back pain. They’re obviously regular users, since in the interview they shared gems such as…
Lynx: “I’m stoked that we have so many different cultures. I think it’s amazing and it makes me proud of humanity every day that we have so many different places and people.”
Lamb: “We just want to come from a place of love and light. I think we’re meant to do something more—we’re healers. We just want to exert the most love and positivity we can.”
Of course, they’re not entirely reformed, evidenced by Lamb saying of the Holocaust, “I just think everyone needs to frickin’ get over it.” Still, the lesson is clear: Give bigots weed!
