Tesla CEO Elon Musk sat down with Joe Rogan late Thursday night on his popular podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, for a candid interview which — given the current state of affairs — may or may not have made his stockholders sleep any easier at night. During the two-and-a-half-hour-long live feed, the two discussed a number of topics ranging from Musk’s ideas for an electric plane and artificial intelligence to his history of questionable tweeting habits.
Oh, and they also smoked a blunt together and threw back some whiskey!
When Rogan, who happens to be an outspoken advocate for the legalization of marijuana, offered the blunt to Musk, the billionaire playboy first asked whether it was a joint or a cigar. “Yeah, I think I tried one once,” he said, when it was confirmed that it was indeed a cigarette containing marijuana and Rogan asked if he had ever used before.
“You probably can’t because of stockholders,” Rogan joked, to which Musk reasoned, “I mean it’s legal, right?”
Legal or not, it goes without saying that Twitter had a damn field day with Elon Musk smoking marijuana.
Previously, Musk took heat for announcing that he was making Tesla stock private for $420 per share, which was supposedly inspired by then-girlfriend Grimes introducing him to weed.
“It seemed like better karma at $420 than at $419,” he later told the New York Times in an interview. “But I was not on weed, to be clear. Weed is not helpful for productivity. There’s a reason for the word ‘stoned.’ You just sit there like a stone on weed.”
