Recently it was announced that KISS frontman Gene Simmons is a chief evangelist officer at Canadian and fertilizer company Invictus. It has lead to a confusion among metalheads since Gene has always promoted clean living.
In a recent Interview with Toronto Sun, Gene was asked about promoting cannabis and cleared it by saying:
“Well, drug abuse, you don’t have to be a genius [to know that’s wrong] and alcohol abuse, everybody knows that’s wrong but I’ve been dismissive of cannabis. And I didn’t know much about it. I just dismissed it out of hand.
“I have to man up and admit in the past, I used to dismiss lots of things because of ignorance and arrogance,” he explained. “About three years ago when I did my own research, I found out astonishingly new information that doctors and researchers were talking about with regards to cannabis.”
