The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers felt compelled to try marijuana because he was a huge Bob Marley fan during his teenage years.

The Mr. Brightside rocker has long since turned his back on cannabis because of its negative effects - but is glad he is not ignorant of mind-altering substances.

He says, "You're 14 years old, you start listening to Bob Marley, you've got to try marijuana. Now I know it makes me lazy and I don't like that."
