It appears Malia Obama is enjoying acting like a normal teenager, as she was caught smoking marijuana at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago. The music festival was at the same time as the Democratic National Convention.
Eyewitness Jerrdin Selwyn, 18, told Radar she saw the first daughter toking it up during a Bryson Tiller set on July 31. “I caught Malia smoking pot and I have the pictures to prove it,” Selwyn said, insisting, “You could smell the marijuana smoke.”
“I saw some young guy hand her a cigarette and she took at least one hit on it,” Selwyn continued. “She had it in her hand for about one minute, then gave it back to him.”
President Obama famously wrote about his experiences with marijuana, and said he was a member of a pot-smoking group in high school that called themselves the “Choom Gang,” after the Hawaiian slang word for marijuana, “chum.” He even admitted to drug use in his own autobiography.
Do you think this reflects poorly on President Obama or Malia?
