Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte fined $24,000 over Cannabis use

Guy Laliberte, Founder of Cirque du Soleil, Fined for Cannabis Possession in Tahiti.

A representative for Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte says the Canadian entrepreneur has been fined about $24,000 for cannabis possession in French Polynesia.

Anne Dongois says a court in Papeete, on Tahiti's northwestern coast, found Laliberte guilty on Tuesday of possessing and using cannabis.

She says he was cleared of any other infractions.

Laliberte was originally taken into custody by authorities in Tahiti in 2019 over claims of cannabis cultivation.

Lune Rouge, a Montreal-based entrepreneurial organization headed by Laliberte, said at the time that he was being questioned about cannabis grown for personal use on his private island in the French collectivity of islands in the South Pacific.

The organization added that Laliberte was a medical cannabis user but he denied any involvement in selling or trafficking of controlled substances.
