First, it was drinking and twerking. Next, images of Malia Obama allegedly smoking pot were revealed after it was discovered she had ditched the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia to attend the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago last month.
Videos that party-goers took of Malia twerking and shaking her booty at the event were posted on social media, but a new video shows Malia smoking what a witness tells Radaronline is a marijuana cigarette.
In the video, a brunette is flicking her tongue at the camera, but right behind her is Malia puffing on a cigarette. The footage plays out at regular speed, then goes into slow motion.

The report claims that an 18-year-old eyewitness, Jerrdin Selwyn, told the site that she first spotted Malia smoking pot during a Bryson Tiller set on July 31.
“I caught Malia smoking pot and I have the pictures to prove it,” Selwyn said, adding, “You could smell the marijuana smoke.”

Delwyn snitched on Malia, sharing that she “saw some young guy hand her a cigarette and she took at least one hit on it.” She added that the first daughter “had it in her hand for about one minute, then gave it back to him.”
The report refers to an autobiography in which Malia’s father admitted to drug use when he was young. The president was a member of the pot-smoking group, “the Choom Gang,” in high school. The Hawaiian slang word for smoking marijuana is “choom.” He’s openly said that marijuana is “no more dangerous than alcohol.”
Malia Obama allegedly getting caught smoking pot is making news because she’s the first daughter and a lot of news about her hard-partying ways is coming to light. She’s enjoying her summer after graduating high school and plans to take a year off before beginning her studies at Harvard University in 2017.
In early July, Malia was seen dancing and drinking at the Sugar Factory in Amsterdam. A DJ there commented on Malia’s hip movements and said she was flirting with several others at the venue. Last October, she was seen standing at a beer pong table when she visited Brown University.
There are questions being raised as to whether the president’s daughter is out-of-control. In some ways, she’s being a normal teenager who’s enjoying her freedom after graduating high school. In other ways, she seems to be somewhat indulgent.
Malia Obama twerking, drinking, and now possibly smoking pot is getting mixed reactions. Many think everyone should leave the girl alone while others insist President Obama’s daughter should show more class and dignity.
In a light-hearted report by TMZ about Malia attending Lollapalooza, it notes that the first daughter didn’t exactly blend in due to her Secret Service protection. One of the men in attendance was muscular in a black t-shirt. He “does NOT fit in with the rest of the crowd around Malia,” the report states. Being the president’s daughter, she requires the protection of Secret Service agents everywhere she goes. Some of the agents outside the actual party area were dressed in khaki shorts and plaid shirts. They dressed down and looked casual, but it was still obvious a VIP was at the event.
The internet has gone wild over the images of Malia partying and twerking. The nation has watched her grow up in the White House, so her every move is under a microscope right now.
If Malia Obama was smoking a pot cigarette at Lollapalooza, she’s sure to get hammered with more criticism.
