Mr President’s daughter Malia Obama was caught twerking at a high school party while accompanied by the United States Secret Service, and the media argued in defense of a young girl who should have the privacy to live freely just like any other teenager–but nothing was said about “pot smoking”.
A video has now surfaced online showing “daddy’s girl” smoking weed, an act Daily Mail described as ” a chip off the old block”.
According to the report, an eyewitness confirmed Malia was smoking marijuana while mingling at the Chicago music festival [Lollapalooza].
Smoking weed in the U.S. isn’t a crime in most states, and some other patients elsewhere are allowed to take it only on doctor’s prescription.
Malia Obama suffered an asthma attack while she was a toddler, so she could have smoked “something” for health reasons.
Besides that, Marijuana was recently decriminalized in Illinois – the state where she allegedly smoked “something suspicious”.

Malia was pictured wrecking havoc with her friends Thursday night, catching a performance from Norwegian DJ Cashmere Cat.
It was the same time Hillary Clinton took to the stage for her party nomination but Obama must have agreed Malia had no reasons to attend party meetings that night. Not even at this time when she just graduated from high school, having a year gap before starting her undergraduate classes.
Fo the first time, the president’s daughter missed out on the Democratic National Convention ever since her father became the Democratic nominee back in 2008.
What a day it was for the young high school graduate to take full advantage of, by doing what she had always dreamt of.
She left Philadelphia all the way to Chicago for the memorable night.
Malia had an asthma attack when she was a toddler, which President Obama claims is one of the reasons why he champions climate change, the report confirms.
In an interview with ABC News’ chief health correspondent, Dr. Richard Besser, in April 2015, he said: ‘Well you know, Malia had asthma when she was four, and because we had good health insurance, we were able to knock it out early.
The president said he can ‘relate to… the fear a parent has when your four-year-old daughter comes up to you and says, “Daddy, I’m having trouble breathing.” ‘
The fright you feel is terrible.’
Obama said the health scare resulted in a single trip to the emergency room for his daughter, adding that she now leads an active lifestyle without an inhaler.
It’s not as if “smoking pot” makes one good or bad though it has some kind of negative evaluations attached to it everywhere. The U.S. president has admitted to smoking marijuana in the past. He said he had used ‘a little blow’ in high school and college.
He also made a joke out of his past habit at this year’s White House Correspondent’s Dinner when he said: ‘The last time I was that high, I was trying to decide my major.’
It’s arguable that some pastors, musicians and poets smoke marijuana for inspiration; students smoke it for calmness; and armed robbers smoke it for courage. It’s a choice.
