Elon Musk found himself in the middle of another controversy on Friday, after he smoked weed and sipped whiskey during a rather odd Thursday night podcast hosted by comedian Joe Rogan - with some suggesting the eccentric billionaire had acted irresponsibly.

Passersby tried to similarly warn a woman not to enter the building, but she couldn't hear them over her headphones. He said one investigator said it could have been "a bloodbath beyond imagination". "After that I started running".
"You probably can't because of stockholders", Rogan joked, to which Musk reasoned, "I mean it's legal, right?"
Of his past experiences with smoking, the actor had this to say:"I'm not a regular smoker of weed", he mused.
Rogan found Musk's response dubious.
Tesla shares fell 6.3 per cent to US$263.24, the lowest close in five months.

Earlier this week Musk escalated his baseless attacks against British diver Vernon Unsworth, claiming that the man who helped rescue children from a cave in Thailand was a "child rapist" in an email to a reporter.

He went on to say that running Tesla was the "hardest" job he has: "It's very difficult to keep a auto company alive". In the first quarter of this year, the company lost Morton's predecessor, Eric Branderiz, and Susan Repo, who was treasurer and vice-president of finance. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is now probing that assertion, and Musk quickly backtracked on the plan. But Musk also said this isn't really a priority, and he also dismissed the concept of a flying auto as impractical.
