Elon Musk smokes pot on live podcast

On Friday, Tesla's chief accounting officer unexpectedly resigned after a month on the job - leaving a hole in the embattled company's management. The impetus? Reportedly the unrelenting pace of work and the level of public scrutiny at the company.

Musk smoked marijuana with comedian Joe Rogan at the end of a two-and-half-hour interview on the "The Joe Rogan Experience", which featured a wide-ranging discussion on topics including artificial intelligence, the Tesla chief executive's technological ambitions and personal hardship.

The plunge in Tesla's stock comes just a day after Elon Musk expressed his support for a report estimating the U.S. sales figures for electric cars now available in the United States.

"Executive departures are the real issue", said Ross Gerber of investment firm Gerber Kawasaki in Santa Monica, which holds Tesla shares.

Also today, Tesla human resources chief Gaby Toledano announced that she would not be returning to Tesla after taking a leave of absence last month.

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.

When The New York Times asked Musk if he was smoking when he made the tweet, Musk replied, "Weed is not helpful for productivity".

The host responded with a classic peer pressure tactic, daring him to smoke some and saying "come on, man ... you probably can't cuz stockholders, right?"

The campaign includes video ads and billboards, like one displayed atop a Nike store in downtown San Francisco on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the NFL alleging that teams colluded to keep him out of the league.

Elon Musk Renews Attacks on British Diver, Calls Him a ‘Child Rapist’
Separately, CEO Elon Musk doubled-down on criticism of a British rescue diver he has accused of being a pedophile. The Briton had told CNN that the submarine was "just a PR stunt [that] had absolutely no chance of working".

"Although the majority of shareholders I spoke to said they would remain with Tesla if we went private, the sentiment, in a nutshell, was 'please don't do this, '" Musk wrote in a Tesla blog post.

The spot on one of the most popular podcasts in the US marks Musk's first appearance in a public forum since he stunned the financial world last month with his short-lived effort to take Tesla private. 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.

"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", he added.

Analysts on Friday reiterated their call for Tesla to bring in another senior leader.

After the podcast aired Tesla shares dropped 9 per cent, wiping $3.1 billion off the company's value (at the time of writing.) Although, that may have more to do with Musk's robotic behaviour than smoking weed. Curiously, all this comes at a time when the company is oh-so-close to churning out profitable quarters.

On August 8, the SEC launched an investigation into Musk's tweet, and investors have launched at least two lawsuits, including one on Thursday, according to the AP.

As of writing, Tesla stock is down 6.64% at $263.13 per share.
