Tesla billionaire Elon Musk shocks as he smokes WEED on web show

Tesla chief Elon Musk smokes marijuana on live web show

Another high-level Tesla official has left the electric automaker, amid struggles to meet production goals and negative publicity surrounding founder Elon Musk.

"I don't think you'd necessarily want to be me", he said.

Bloomberg also reported Tesla's chief people officer Gaby Toledano would not return from a holiday just over a year after joining.

The CEO of Tesla and Space X smoked marijuana toward the end of a more than two-and-half-hour live interview Thursday on comedian Joe Rogan's podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience. After Rogan confirmed that the product was indeed legal to consume in California, Musk reached for the blunt and took a puff.

Running a auto company is hard. As noted, Musk once tweeted that he was considering selling shares of his company for $420.

Even before Musk's surprise August 7 tweet that he had funding "secured" for a go-private deal, Tesla had been under scrutiny from investors, analysts and short-sellers as it works to hit production targets and slow its cash burn. As of midday Friday, more than 1.5 million users had checked out his chat with Musk. Elon Musk has continued to self-inflict PR disasters one after another, and not only that, but there is a disturbing trend of top talent bailing out on the automaker.

Morton - who did not respond to a request for comment - joined Tesla last month from Seagate Technology where he served as a VP for two decades and CFO for nearly three years.

South Korea's Yonhap News on Thursday quoted analysts who took Kim's remarks as a positive sign. Trump appears to have welcomed that message, writing in a tweet : "Thank you to Chairman Kim.

Shortly after smoking, Musk looks at his phone and laughs, telling Rogan he was getting texts from friends asking why he was smoking weed during the interview.

In the clip, Rogan lights up what looks like a cigar, and Musk inquires what he's holding.

Tesla Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton resigned Tuesday, according to a Tesla public filing Friday morning. We own two Tesla cars. In recent weeks he has drawn criticism for claiming that a British diver who assisted in the rescue of a youth soccer team from a flooded cave in Thailand is a child molester.

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

The upheaval that began with the abortive bid to take the company's shares off the public market has deeply dented Tesla's stock - the shares have lost one-third of their value since early August - and brought new scrutiny of Musk's behavior and managerial fitness.

And now that the technology that underpins Tesla's products has matured, is it time for a more traditional CEO to step in and help the company level-off into a stable and profitable enterprise? As for recreational drugs, he has used them "on occasion", sources said.
