Elon Musk And Joe Rogan Smoke Marijuana During Live Podcast Interview

Elon Musk And Joe Rogan Smoke Marijuana During Live Podcast Interview

On Rogan's podcast, Musk made news by apparently taking a hit off Rogan's marijuana.

"I want to be clear that I believe strongly in Tesla, its mission, and its future prospects, and I have no disagreements with Tesla's leadership or its financial reporting", Morton added.

Tesla's stock was down over 7% on Friday after news that two executives were leaving and after CEO Elon Musk was filmed smoking a spliff - weed mixed with tobacco - during a live interview on Thursday.

In a two-and-a-half-hour discussion with comedian Joe Rogan, Musk touched on topics as diverse as living in a computer simulation to coming up with a flamethrower "that's not a flamethrower" as a promotional item for his Boring Company.

The last 12 hours of the hit TV show How To Wreck A Car Company have taken yet another freaky twist.

If such a system is connected to your vehicle, it could calculate when you'll be home and start the air conditioning at the optimal time to save energy, Musk said.

Musk told The Guardian in response to a question about whether Tesla drug-tests employees that "our policy allows trace amounts of THC [an ingredient of cannabis] during work times, provided they are below the safety limit (much like a minimum alcohol level)".

In a premarket SEC filing, the company said its chief accounting officer, Dave Morton, was quitting, effective immediately.

The storm's maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour and it was moving west at 12 miles per hour . Whichever of these scenarios pans out, Bermuda is very likely to feel serious impacts from the storm.

Tesla shares fell 6.3 per cent to US$263.24, the lowest close in five months.

The chief executive officer filled the voids left by departing heads of human resources and communications and elevated Jerome Guillen to president of automotive operations.

"I've thought about this quite a lot, quite a lot", Musk said of the electric jet design, according to The Verge.

Coupled with Musk's antics on the podcast, news of two high profile exits from Tesla saw the company's shares plunge close to 9%.

In a remarkable coincidence, Musk's appearance was followed nearly immediately by news that two of Tesla's top execs are stepping down.

That said, Musk did reveal that his company Neuralink, which now explores how machines can connect humans and computers through electrodes, has "something interesting" to announce in a few months.

Shortly after smoking, Musk looks at his phone and laughs, telling Rogan he was getting texts from friends asking why he was smoking weed during the interview. Morton worked for the company for only a month. The CEO didn't give any indication that he's seeking a lieutenant to help him handle the workload.
