Tesla Shares Tumble as Executives Leave the Company

Bizarre – Tesla founder Elon Musk has added to speculation over his behaviour by smoking a joint during a live interview More

The billionaire spent two and a half hours on a podcast discussing everything from artificial intelligence and its impact on humankind to flamethrowers and social media.

Rogan told Musk he'd rolled marijuana in tobacco leaves.

"You probably can't do this because of stockholders, right?" Tesla and its CEO are now also facing a litany of lawsuits claiming market manipulation, including one filed Thursday by Andrew Left, a prominent short seller and the founder of Citron Research.

Elon Musk talked about a "never-ending explosion" of ideas that constantly runs through his brain on the show. Musk said, just before apparently inhaling.

Musk has said the company is producing more than 5,000 Model 3 electric cars per week, and cash generated from the sales will bring sustained quarterly profits.

Business magnate Elon Musk is a provocateur, and he met his match in comedian Joe Rogan.

Short-seller Andrew Left is suing Tesla and Musk for stock manipulation, alleging Musk's since-abandoned plan to take Tesla private was created to "burn" investors who were betting against the share price of the company.

How the coaching staff manages those realities will determine just how good Notre Dame can be come November. Edwards was a standout at MI , recording 3,541 receiving yards and 39 touchdowns over four seasons.

Musk did not immediately respond to additional questions about his behavior or comments on the podcast.

"I think I tried one once", Musk replied with a laugh. 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.

And the electric-car maker has been no stranger to controversy this summer: Musk came under fire in early August when he unexpectedly sent out a tweet saying he was considering taking Tesla private, and had the "funding secured". "Do people get upset at you if you do certain things?"

The company, hurt in the past month by Musk's high-profile U-turn on a deal to take it private, said Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton had resigned, citing discomfort with the level of public attention and pace of work.

"I don't think most people would like to be me", said Musk.

Tesla's stock and bond prices dropped on Wednesday - linked to the row over Musk's comments about Mr Unsworth but also following an unveiling by Mercedes that presents a challenge to the electric vehicle maker. "As a result, this caused me to reconsider my future", Morton said in the filing.
