Elon Musk smokes weed, talks flamethrowers on Joe Rogan podcast

Tesla chief Elon Musk smokes marijuana on live web show

Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton resigned after just one month in the job because of discomfort with the attention on the company and pace of work during that time, Tesla said in a filing on Friday.

"This caused me to reconsider my future", Morton said.

Toledano, who has been on leave of absence from the company, said she would not be returning to the company.

"Is that a joint or is that a cigar?" asked Musk, as Rogan explained it was a mix of marijuana and tobacco.

Musk appeared on Joe Rogan's popular podcast on Thursday night sipping whiskey, smoking marijuana and talking about electric airplanes.

Back in April 2016, Air Force awarded Musk's company with almost $83 million to launch a GPS III satellite, and extended contracts in the following years.

Musk said he had come up with preliminary designs for a supersonic, electric plane that would take off and land vertically.

Tesla is now worth roughly $US21 billion less than it was in the immediate aftermath of Musk's infamous "funding secured" tweet. Tesla shares, down just 1 per cent after Musk's appearance on the Rogan podcast overnight, fell another 7 per cent after Morton's resignation to $262.54.

Whatever the case, giving a person like Elon Musk weed to discuss the probability of a simulation will undoubtedly lead to an interesting conversation.

Musk told Rogan that running Tesla is the hardest of his several endeavors.

Later on Friday, Tesla named a new president of automotive operations, promoting eight-year Tesla employee and former Daimler truck exec Jerome Guillen into the role overseeing all automotive operations and reporting to Musk.

Musk didn't appear to be doing anything illegal because recreational use of marijuana is legal in the state of California.

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.

"Totally legal", Rogan responded, handing Musk the joint. "Every now and again I get drawn in and it's not good, you can make some mistakes". He was the latest in a long list of executive to have left the carmaker over the past two years as it strives to expand output, deal with production snags and generate profit.

It wasn't the first time Musk's tweeting put him into some potential legal trouble: Vernon Unsworth, the British diver who assisted in the Thai cave rescue this summer, filed a lawsuit against the executive for calling him a "pedo" online. The newspaper said two people familiar with the automaker's board expressed concern about his workload and use of the prescription sleeping drug Ambien.
