    I was trying to say to one of my friends that people here are smelling weed and I could smell it even when I was in the airport and it was my first time to be here.

    I don't understand.

    Where is here?
    What does people are smelling weed mean? Do you mean people smell of weed?

    The main problem with your sentence is the phrase from airport. Do you mean at the airport?

    Also, as Yankee asks above—how can you 'hear' weed?

    By weed, do you mean "cannabis"?

    Do you mean you are in an airport and you can smell cannabis?

    If this is the case, then you'd be smelling weed in the airport. I smell it all over London, but I hadn't noticed it in Heathrow.

    Re: I could smell weed from airport.

    Perhaps it grows nearby. Otherwise, you would be smelling it because people at the airport are smoking it. (I hope it's not the pilot.)
