French president Emmanuel Macron reassured winemakers on Thursday that there would be no amendment to the current Evin Law, restricting the advertising of alcoholic beverages in the country, as long as he is leading the country.

Speaking at a meeting with farming industry leaders, he said: “I drink wine for lunch and dinner, and I really believe in Pompidou’s formula: ‘Do not bother the French,'” reports the Huffington Post.

“There is a scourge of public health when young people get drunk at an accelerated speed with alcohol or beer, but it is not with wine.”

“As long as I’m president, there will be no amendment to harden the Evin law,” he said.
