Weed, whiskey, Tesla and a flamethrower: Elon Musk meets Joe Rogan

  • Musk told Rogan that he's not a regular weed smoker

"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".

Gaby Toledano, Tesla's head of human resources, also said she was leaving the company on Friday.

Musk smoking on "The Joe Rogan Experience."Joe Rogan Experience/YouTubeOn Thursday, Musk was filmed taking a drag on a spliff and drinking whiskey while being interviewed for the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast". That said, his experience was probably not a good fit for the electric auto maker's startup culture, which is characterized by its flat organizational structure and its fast pace.

Tesla is facing increasing competition from other auto makers that are developing their own lines of electric vehicles.

Mr Morton, who joined Tesla on 6 August, resigned on 4 September. This reportedly has led to an SEC investigation. Tesla's stock is down more than six percent to $262, the lowest level since April.

While the signal sent by the string of resignations was more concrete evidence of disfunction, Musk's decision to smoke pot on a live stream added fuel to swirling speculation that the executive's erratic behavior in recent months was influenced by drug use.

Rogan's podcast is known for being choppy and focused on a wide array of topics, but Musk's appearance was particularly wild, as the two went from discussing ancient weaponry to talking about the CEO's new electric plane design.

After the markets closed Friday, Tesla published a blog post by Musk that announced the promotions of seven Tesla employees, promised new products and asked his company's supporters to ignore negative media reports.

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

Musk stunned investors a month back with tweets saying he had funding to take the company private for $420 per share, which many thought was a reference to weed.

Rogan asked Musk about The Boring Company, which Musk said started as a " joke", mostly borne out of his desperation to fix L.A.'s notoriously bad traffic problem.

Disclosure: I have no ownership in shares of TSLA and have no plans to initiate any positions within 72 hours.

In August he told the New York Times that he worked "120-hour weeks" and took sedatives.

On Friday morning, Tesla's Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton made his resignation from the company public.

The 47-year-old billionaire later said he wasn't a "regular smoker" of marijuana because he doesn't find it "very good for productivity".
