Malia Obama 'caught smoking pot' at Lollapalooza music festival, report says

Malia Obama attended the music festival in Chicago, Illinois in July.

Malia Obama was allegedly caught smoking weed while attending Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago, Illinois in July. According to a video posted by Radar Online, the 18-year-old daughter of US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama has been spotted smoking what looks like a joint.

Eyewitness Jerrdin Selwyn told the celebrity gossip website: "I caught Malia smoking pot and I have the pictures to prove it. 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 added. "She had it in her hand for about one minute, then gave it back to him. [Malia] 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."

Cannabis was recently decriminalized in the state of Illinois. Under the law, anyone caught with 10 grams or less of marijuana will receive a fine up to $200.
