As the video gained traction, more news hit: Early Friday, the Palo Alto, California, company announced that Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton resigned after a month on the job, citing public attention and the fast pace of the post.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk described himself as a "business magnet" via Twitter on the morning after sipping whiskey and smoking the devil's lettuce with Joe Rogan. He was honest, possibly drunk and stoned: "I think people should be nicer to each other ..."

Gaby Toledano, Tesla's chief human resources officer, has also announced she would not return from a leave of absence she took in August, Bloomberg reported.

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. Musk touched on all manner of things in the interview, but he's drawing the most attention for taking a puff of a marijuana-tobacco joint handed to him by Rogan.

Powerful quake hits Japanese island of Hokkaido
Japan sits on the Pacific " Ring of Fire " where numerous world's earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are recorded. NHK World, a public broadcaster in Japan, reported that the quakes caused "huge landslides" in the area.

Musk explained that he's "not a regular smoker of weed" because he "doesn't find it's very good for productivity".

The podcast episode arrived at a tumultuous moment for Tesla and Musk.

This recent public display comes amid concerns about Musk's leadership qualities, and is bound to fuel further questions about his mental fitness. The San Francisco office of the SEC has sent subpoenas to Tesla regarding its privatization plans to determine whether Musk intentionally misled investors.

Tesla is under extreme pressure to turn a sustained net profit starting this quarter, as promised by Mr Musk, but in the second quarter it burned through $739.5 million (€648m) in cash and lost a quarterly record $717.5 million (€620m).

After discussing the artistic and engineering merits of wrist watches, Rogan brought out a spliff.

Along with his electric auto company, Musk heads up space exploration firm Space X, tunnel construction firm The Boring Company, and Neuralink, which works on augmenting human brains with artificial intelligence. Morton claimed he couldn't keep up with the company's jarring path. "Tesla 1st, 2nd & 3rd in August sales", Musk tweeted.
