Something illicit was in the air when Emmanuel Macron was on a walkabout in French Guiana; in a chat with local people, the French President said he could smell “not just cigarettes.”
French President Emmanuel Macron has a fondness for ad-hoc discussions with local people during walkabouts. His recent trip to Cayenne, the capital of French Guiana, was no different.
On Friday night, Macron visited neighborhoods on the outskirts of Cayenne and chatted to locals. However, during their conversation, the French President sensed something was amiss.
“There are a couple of people here who aren’t just smoking cigarettes,” Macron said. “I still have a nose.”
The President advised them not to smoke marijuana, as it is harmful to their academic ambitions.
“This will not help you to do well in school, you must tell the younger ones,” he advised.
