Should I risk smoking weed in (Nantes) France while on exchange from Canada?

I'm a frequent pot smoker going on a 10 month student exchange from very liberal Toronto (where you can smoke weed on the street and cops will at the worst ask you to put it out) to Nantes, France. I know that people do smoke in France, but also that the police follow the letter of the law more strictly. I obviously don't want to be detained or deported on my trip, and I'm perfectly willing to give up smoking if it's not worth the risk. Do any travellers have experience with smoking pot in France? Encounters with police? With Nantes specifically? Thank you!
