Elon Musk smokes pot on live podcast

Elon Musk smokes a blunt live on You Tube with podcaster Joe Rogan

Elon Musk chairman and CEO at Tesla and chairman of SpaceX inhales what he said was marijuana on a live You Tube webcast Thursday night

Shares of electric vehicle maker Tesla Inc. fell more than 6 per cent early Friday after the CEO appeared to smoke marijuana during an interview and the company's accounting chief left after a month on the job.

On Friday, Tesla's chief accounting officer unexpectedly resigned after a month on the job - leaving a hole in the embattled company's management.

"I think I tried one once", said Musk, when asked if he had ever smoked a mix of weed and tobacco.

Elon Musk sparked concern with shareholders after smoking marijuana live web show with USA comedian Joe Rogan late Thursday night while discussing a plethora of random subjects, including artificial, flame throwers and social media.

But after ranking second in the field Thursday in strokes gain, approach to the hole, Woods dropped to 35th in that category. This past Tuesday, Tiger, Phil Mickelson, and Bryson DeChambeau earned the first three captain's picks to the 2018 U.S.


The blunt usage began near the end of the interview when Rogan produced it and Musk responded by asking, "I mean, it's legal, right?" On AI, Musk said he would be announcing in a few months a "neurolink" that connects humans with machines.

This follows other bad news for Tesla, and Musk coming under fire for things including what he says on Twitter.

Morton's departure further roiled the company, which has been under heightened scrutiny since Musk's chaotic Twitter announcement on August 7 that he was considering taking Tesla private, before reversing the plan two weeks later. Shares soared on the news, eventually rising more than 10 percent (the Nasdaq briefly halted trading to ensure the tweet was legitimate).

Whatever the case, giving a person like Elon Musk weed to discuss the probability of a simulation will undoubtedly lead to an interesting conversation.

Asked by Musk whether it was legal to smoke, Rogan assured him that it was, then asked: "How does that work?"

Tesla representatives were not immediately available for comment Friday morning.

Musk didn't appear to be doing anything illegal because recreational use of marijuana is legal in the state of California.

Just another installment in the extraordinary saga of Elon Musk, the billionaire leader of two major companies that are trying to change the world. Rogan passes the joint to Musk, who also takes a sip of whiskey.

Fox Business Network's Charlie Gasparino tweeted Friday that the Air Force "is looking into Elon Musk's pot-smoking", which is prohibited by anyone who has a government security clearance. "I don't find that it is very good for productivity". Meanwhile Musk somehow can't stop accusing one of the cave divers who rescued those trapped children in Thailand of being a pedophile. "Although the majority of shareholders I spoke to said they would remain with Tesla if we went private, the sentiment, in a nutshell, was 'please don't do this'".
