GENE SIMMONS SAYS HE WAS ‘WRONG,’ ‘NOT INFORMED’ ABOUT CANNABIS

Gene Simmons has said he was “wrong” and “not informed” about cannabis as he began his role as “chief evangelical officer” for Canadian cannabis company Invictus. The announcement last week took many fans by surprise since the Kiss star had always been outspoken about the use of any form of drugs, and has always insisted he’d never used anything other than prescription substances.

“I was wrong and I was not informed,” Simmons told the Toronto Sun in a recent interview. “Well, drug abuse, you don’t have to be a genius [to reject it] 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," he continued, "in the past, I used to dismiss lots of things because of ignorance and arrogance. About three years ago when I did my own research, I found out astonishing new information that doctors and researchers were talking about with regards to cannabis.”
