Young Vietnamese to Obama: I Read ‘that You Also Like Smoking Weed’

Obama: ‘I don’t know if that’s true’

OBAMA: "I’m going to call on this guy just because I kind of like the yellow in his hair there. I like the style. There you go."
MALE: "Thank you. I’m a filmmaker, so I’m very interested in personal stories. And you said before, when you are young you’re like fooling around. And I read on Internet — I’m not sure if it’s true or not — that you also like smoking weed and things like that." (Laughter) 
OBAMA: "I don’t know if that’s true."
MALE: "I wonder what makes you from that guy become a guy who care about the society. Because a lot of — I think many young Vietnamese people, they still love like fooling around and they don’t really care about the society. But there must be something that makes you become this person. Thank you." (Applause)
