Twins sisters who created a band which advocated for the rise Aryan nation say that have softened their views and credit that change of heart to marijuana.
Lamb and Lynx Gaede were 11 years old when they formed the band Prussian Blue, whose name stemmed from the name of the chemical agent that was used to kill millions of Jews in the Holocaust
The girls, from Bakersfield, Calif., who had denied the events of the Holocaust and even supported various white supremacy groups, now consider themselves "pretty liberal," according to the Daily Mail.
After shedding the influence of their racist parents, the girls embraced the diverse world around them.
"I'm stoked that we have so many different cultures," Lynx said adding, "I think it's amazing and it makes me proud of humanity every day that we have so many different places and people."
During her freshman year in high school Lynx was diagnosed with cancer and underwent surgery to remove a tumor from her shoulder. She was prescribed pain medication, but began smoking marijuana to combat the nausea and to maintain a healthy weight.
"I have to say, marijuana saved my life … I would probably be dead if I didn't have it," Lynx said.
Her sister, Lamb, has also been struggling with her health and began to smoke marijuana as a way to ease her pain from scoliosis, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
The girls credit smoking marijuana for increasing their creativity and have since undertaken painting as the medium for their artistic expression.
"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."
Speaking about growing up in such a narrow-minded household, the sisters are happy with their music careers but wished it could have occurred in a more loving and accepting atmosphere.
"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 frontmen for a belief system that we didn't completely understand at the time," Lynx told the Daily Mirror.
