During a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Elon Musk decided to spark up a blunt and get high. The wide-ranging interview covered his ideas about artificial intelligence, the lifespan of the universe, the nature of reality and more. He also discussed his difficulties with running his companies Tesla and SpaceX.
Financial outlets report that Tesla’s stock declined over 10% following the interview. It seems like most Tesla stockholders aren’t quite woke enough to accept their CEO smoking a harmless plant.
What part of the video does Elon Musk smoke weed at?
Elon Musk was sipping whiskey throughout the podcast, but he decided to get high at the 2:10 mark, after Joe Rogan lit up a blunt and offered it to the controversial CEO. He takes only one hit off the blunt. He later stated that he’s not a regular marijuana smoker, but that he has tried it before on occasion. He didn’t mention if past experiences were with smoking, vaping, or eating it. He also mentioned that he didn’t feel any effect from the pot.
It remains to be seen what will happen to Tesla. Will Elon Musk retain his role as CEO of the popular electric car manufacturer? While pot acceptance is increasing, it’s still wildly unpopular amongst the older generation (the people who own the most stocks). Will the media continue to demonize Musk for smoking weed or will they eventually realize it’s not a big deal? Like, come on. Every reasonable person would realize this is really not a big deal. At all.
It seems like we’ll find out shortly.
