Finland’s prime minister takes a test to determine if she used cocaine after the controversial video

Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said on Friday she underwent a test to see if she had used drugs at a party where she was filmed dancing with friends. The test result will be published next week.

“I’ve never used drugs in my life, not even when I was young,” he told reporters.

When asked about other people using drugs that day, Sanna said: “Obviously I have no way of knowing if anyone used anything that I didn’t see. On the night shown in the video, I didn’t realize anyone had used it.”


The relaxed moment drew criticism this week because according to some newspapers, people can be heard in the video saying “Jauhojengi”, which means “the flour gang”. This would be an indication that the guests were using cocaine.

Opposition politicians were quick to take to social media to urge the prime minister to take a drug test. Mikko Kärnä published in chirp that this should be a voluntary measure and the outcome should be presented by an independent body.


Sanna countered the rumors by saying it was merely a private party at a private home and denied using drugs, although she confirmed consumption of “lowquality alcoholic beverages”.

“I’m upset that these videos were released. The point is that I’ve been partying, dancing and singing with friends, albeit in a crazy way,” said the Prime Minister.


Many Finns didn’t understand the reason for so much controversy and defended the fact that the prime minister also had fun during her summer holidays.

“I want to show that these positions are also occupied by normal people with normal lives. I have a family life, a professional life and free time to spend with my friends, like many people my age,” said the young prime minister.
