Elon Musk Smokes Weed on Joe Rogan Show

Elon Musk sipped whiskey and smoked marijuana during a 2 1/2-hour podcast with California comedian Joe Rogan that touched upon everything from flame throwers and artificial intelligence to the end of the universe.

Musk spoke to Rogan for more than two-and-a-half hours, in the latter stages of which the presenter offered Tesla's CEO a drag on the joint, which was rolled with tobacco.

Bloomberg also reported Tesla's Chief People Officer Gaby Toledano was to leave the company just over a year after joining.

"You probably can't because of stockholders", Rogan joked, to which Musk reasoned, "I mean it's legal, right?"

At one point, Musk and Rogan shared a spliff, though Musk said doesn't make a habit of smoking weed, which he called "a cup of coffee in reverse".

In a recent New York Timers interview, Musk did admit to using the prescription drug Ambien to help him sleep.




Rogan's podcast is known for being choppy and focused on a wide array of topics, but Musk's appearance was particularly wild, as the two went from discussing ancient weaponry to talking about the CEO's new electric plane design.

The company said that Morton gave notice and left the company Tuesday. Musk took a single deep toke.

Musk did not directly address the suit during the Rogan sit-down.

Musk said he is less anxious about AI than he had been, mostly due to "taking a more fatalistic attitude".

Accounting officer Dave Morton's resignation was announced in an official filing with U.S. regulator the Securities and Exchange Commission. I know a lot of people like weed, and that's fine. Investors who have bet that Tesla's stock price will fall, or "short sellers", also have filed a lawsuit against Tesla and Musk alleging that the take-private proposal was a ruse aimed at lowering the value of their holdings. He then backed off from his plan saying Tesla was better off as a public company.

Elon Musk is trending on Twitter again, this time for smoking a blunt. They have fallen about 18% since Musk's tweet on taking the company private on 7 August.
