Malia Obama, the 18-year-old daughter of President Barack Obama has been spotted smoking what some suspected was a cannabis joint.
Miss Obama, who set to attend Harvard next year, was at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago, Illinois where a video captured her appearing to inhale.
In the nine-second video, published by Radar Online, a young woman in the foreground danced and stuck her tongue out while Miss Obama could be seen in the background.
The website claimed an eyewitness had smelled cannabis in the air.
Cannabis is decriminalised in the state of Illinois and people are allowed to possess up to 10 grammes of the drug.
Miss Obama missed Hillary Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Convention last month to go to Lollapalooza.
Previous video had emerged of her “twerking” at the festival.
Her father has previously admitted smoking cannabis in his youth and he was part of a group of friends known as the “choom gang” in Hawaii.
Miss Obama is currently on a gap year before going to Harvard in the autumn of 2017.
At the Democratic Convention her mother Michelle Obama spoke movingly about her effort to give Malia and younger sister Sasha a normal life.
Sasha Obama, 15, has undertaken a summer job in a fish restaurant in Martha’s Vineyard. (The Telegraph)
