France: founder of Cirque du Soleil detained for cannabis-growing
The Canadian billionaire was arrested after he had arrived in French Polynesia in his own plane.
Founder and head of Cirque du Soleil Guy Laliberté has been detained for cannabis-growing in his private atoll Nukutepipi in the South Pacific.
The Canadian billionaire was arrested after he had arrived in French Polynesia in his own plane, reports France Presse.
Lune Rouge company owned by Laliberté states that the cannabis is used medicinally and for private purposes - and in no way in order to obtain commercial advantages.
According to the local TV, a few weeks ago, police interrogated Laliberté’s team-mate suspected of drug possession and found pictures of a marijuana plantation on his mobile phone.
