Elon Musk And Joe Rogan Smoke Marijuana During Live Podcast Interview

Tesla's Musk smokes marijuana on comedy podcast

Some investors were likely concerned with Musk's behavior during the Rogan podcast, which included some smoking and alcohol.

Tesla Inc shares fell almost nine percent on Friday as the resignation of its chief accounting officer after just a month at work spooked investors amid another social media storm around billionaire chief executive Elon Musk. "Since I joined Tesla on August 6th, the level of public attention placed on the company, as well as the pace within the company, have exceeded my expectations", Morton said in his resignation letter. Within an hour of Morton's exit being confirmed, Toledano said she would not return from a leave of absence. Marijuana is legal for medical and recreational use in California, where the interview was recorded.

The online incident follows turmoil at Tesla Inc. this week as the news that two senior executives have made a decision to leave the electric-car making company. That said, his experience was probably not a good fit for the electric vehicle maker's startup culture, which is characterized by its flat organizational structure and its fast pace.

Musk, seemingly referencing former president Bill Clinton, went to Twitter to say that to say, "remember, I did not inhale".

The episode also raised concern about Musk's health.

Mr Morton, who joined Tesla on 6 August, resigned on 4 September.

This time, the executive departure is David Morton, chief accounting officer at Tesla Inc., who called it quits after just a month on the job.

Late Friday evening, Tesla announced an executive reshuffling, after a month or more of chaos within the company.

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

Mr Musk later backed off from his privatisation plan, saying Tesla was better off as a public company.

Morton, who is walking away from a $350,000 base salary and a $10 million new-hire stock grant that would vest over four years, said he believes "strongly" in Tesla and that he had no disagreements with the company's leadership or its financial reporting. 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.

Musk stunned investors a month back with tweets saying he had funding to take the company private for $420 (A$589 ) per share. Left argued that the CEO committed stock manipulation and securities fraud ー shares immediately soared after that post, but have since fallen more than 30 percent.

The circumstances surrounding the go-private, no-go-private episode have reportedly drawn heightened scrutiny from SEC investigators.

All these antics have led many business observers to call for Tesla's board to get help for Musk and relieve him of some of his responsibilities.
