Elon Musk Smoked A Blunt On Joe Rogan's Podcast

Elon Musk smokes a cigarette described as containing tobacco and marijuana during a chat on "The Joe Rogan Experience", a popular YouTube talk show.

Shortly after Rogan lights the blunt, Musk asks "So is that a joint?"

"C'mon, man. You probably can't because of stockholders, right?" Both Rogan and Musk are based in California, which this year became the largest USA state to legalize the recreational use of weed. 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.

The interview touched on everything from artificial intelligence, the end of all in existence and flamethrowers. Musk said, just before apparently inhaling.

Critics say his behavior has become reckless and that Musk should focus on running Tesla, which is facing intense pressure to speed up electric-vehicle production.

Morton, a former CFO for computer-drive maker Seagate Technology, joined Tesla one day before Musk tweeted that he was considering buying out some investors at $420 a share and taking the company private.

"I hope I didn't weird you out and I hope you didn't get mad that we smoked weed", Rogan told Musk, wrapping things up. Shares soared on the news, eventually rising more than 10 percent (the Nasdaq briefly halted trading to ensure the tweet was legitimate). She's not the first Tesla executive to decide to take an endless summer this year, either-Doug Field, who ran the vehicle programs, stepped down in July after going on leave in May. He was honest, possibly drunk and stoned: "I think people should be nicer to each other ..." During the at-times awkward back and forth, Musk spilled upcoming plans for an electric airplane while sharing whiskey and a joint with host Joe Rogan.

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"I think you have a responsibility as a CEO to be a role model to young kids and kids in college and young executives, to your employees", Sun Microsystems co-founder Scott McNealy said on Friday during an interview on FOX Business' "Cavuto: Coast to Coast". "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 was quoted as saying.
