Guy Laliberté, the co-founder of Cirque de Soleil, appeared in court in French Polynesia for cannabis cultivation.
According to a Canoe report, the organization Lune Rouge, which is headed by Laliberté, shared in a statement that Laliberté was being investigated for alleged cultivation, possession, and use of cannabis. The organization further stated that Laliberté was not formally charged with drug trafficking and was able to leave the courtroom without any conditions.
Rather, he was questioned about cannabis growth for personal use. Laliberté is permitted to use cannabis for medical purposes. A Forbes report refers to news source Polynesie 1, which indicates that consumption, cultivation, and transportation is prohibited in the country.
