Elon Musk smokes weed on Joe Rogan podcast

Tesla chief Elon Musk smokes marijuana on live web show

Shares of electric auto maker Tesla have fallen more than 6 per cent after company CEO Elon Musk smoked marijuana during a podcast interview and the company's accounting chief left after a month on the job.

"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, '" Musk wrote in a Tesla blog post.

Overall, Morton appears to have parted ways with Tesla amicably, stating that he still believes in the company's overall mission, as well as its future prospects.

Shares of Tesla stock slid Friday following Musk's appearance on the podcast and amid the departure of the company's chief accounting officer, Dave Morton, who left after just a month on the job.

The controversial SpaceX and Tesla billionaire smoked a joint during a wide-ranging two and a half hour chat Joe Rogan Experience comedy podcast, which covered everything from artificial intelligence and its impact on humankind to flame throwers and social media.

The upheaval in the executive ranks emerged hours after the company's chief executive, Elon Musk, appeared live on YouTube taking a deep drag on what appeared to be a marijuana cigarette during an interview with comedian Joe Rogan, an advocate for legalizing marijuana.

Jerome Guillen, an eight-year veteran of the company, will now oversee all automotive operations, program management, and the company's automotive supply chain, and report directly to Musk.

Morton had been on the job for about a month, starting one day before Musk announced on Twitter that he was considering taking the electric vehicle company private. The entry of additional competitors and Tesla's failure to meet its goals are "certainly enough to cause investors to second-guess the company", he said. That saga ended with a Friday night announcement in late August, in which Musk said Tesla would remain a publicly traded company.

I have never been as obsessed with Elon Musk as many are in the tech sector.

The interview was taped in California, where marijuana is legal.

Regarding Tesla's chief accounting officer's departure, the executive released a statement in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday.

"I'm getting text messages from friends saying, 'What the hell are you doing smoking weed?'" he said.

Elon Musk announced a major shakeup in Tesla's executive ranks on Friday, just hours after a freaky interview left some investors rattled.

"His actions directly affect Tesla's share price because Elon is Tesla". "I don't find that it is very good for productivity". The newspaper said two people familiar with the automaker's board expressed concern about his workload and use of the prescription sleeping drug Ambien. In July, he tweeted that a British diver who helped with the rescue of a Thai soccer team trapped in a cave was a "pedo guy".
