- First Daughter Malia Obama was caught smoking what some believe to be a marijuana joint
- It was during the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago earlier in August
- She was also caught on video twerking during the concert
While 15-year-old Sasha Obama – youngest of the 2 daughters of US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama – is learning the value of hard work while taking a summer job serving food in a Massachusetts restaurant, her older sister, Malia, is living her best life by partying it up in Chicago during her gap year before she attends Harvard in 2017.
The 18-year-old First Daughter was seen in attendance of Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago, Illinois where she was seen allegedly smoking what some suspected to be a cannabis joint.
In the video published by Radar Online. a young woman was seen taking a video of herself while gyrating to the live music, with Malia briefly shown smoking in the background. An eyewitness claims that whatever it was Malia was smoking, it smelled of marijuana.
One party-goer, 18-year-old Jerrdin Selwyn, told Radar that she witnessed Malia smoking a still unverified substance, insisting it was marijuana, during Bryson Tiller set.
“I caught Malia smoking pot and I have the pictures to prove it,” Selwyn claimed. “You could smell the marijuana smoke.”
“I saw some young guy hand her a cigarette and she took at least one hit on it. She had it in her hand for about one minute, then gave it back to him,” she added. “She was literally only a few feet from me…and she was the only person who had any form of pipe or cigarette that I could see. All during this time, the Secret Service was in the background, I’m not sure whether or not they saw her take a hit on a joint.”
It was noted though that possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana in Illinois has been recently decriminalized, so if Selwyn’s claims prove to be true then Malia technically did not break the law.
A video of Malia twerking, wearing skimpy clothes, during the music festival is also circulating in social media, noting that the teenager fought for her right to party – opting to miss the Democratic National Convention as any good presidential daughter would do.
