  • Elon Musk hits massive blunt in live interview

Tesla CEO Elon Musk appeared to smoke marijuana briefly on camera during a podcast appearance, fueling critics who say that his behavior is becoming increasingly concerning and erratic.

Musk, 47, who has repeatedly accused a British diver of being a paedophile, spent two-and-half hours on the streamed podcast late on Thursday discussing everything from artificial intelligence and its impact on humankind to flame throwers and social media.

Towards the end of the interview Rogan lit joint and offered it to Musk.

"You probably can't [take a drag] because of stockholders, right?"

It's tournament football but not as we know it, as the brand new UEFA Nations League prepares to get underway on Thursday. Group 1 of League C has three teams while the rest have four and League D groups all have four teams each.

Tesla Inc. (TSLA) shares dropped down to their lowest point in almost six months today amid a lawsuit made by a short-seller who is suing the auto company over claims that they lied to investors about taking TSLA private. Musk also had some whiskey during the interview. Musk said, just before apparently inhaling.

Several Wall Street analysts renewed calls for the company to appoint another senior leader, either to replace Musk as chief executive or provide more support as the company strives to expand production and potentially raise more capital. The Palo Alto, California-based company faces concerns about its limited cash balance, maturing debt and struggle to steadily build high volumes of the Model 3 sedan, the first electric vehicle that Musk has attempted to mass-manufacture.

Tesla shares fell as much as 10 percent to $252.25 as of 9:46 a.m.in NY, the steepest intraday drop since June 2016.

"A lot of people don't like humanity and think it is a blight, but I don't", he said.

And the electric-car maker has been no stranger to controversy this summer: Musk came under fire in early August when he unexpectedly sent out a tweet saying he was considering taking Tesla private, and had the "funding secured".

"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", Tesla's chief accounting officer, Dave Morton, wrote in his resignation letter, according to a regulatory filing.
