  • Elon Musk Smoking Weed With Joe Rogan is the GIF of the Century

Shares of Tesla fell more than 6 per cent to reach a five-month low on Friday morning following the departure of the company's chief accounting officer, Dave Morton, who resigned less than a month into the job on Friday. Morton, who joined Tesla on August 6, was quoted in a company filing on Friday saying he believes "strongly" in Tesla and that he had no disagreements with the company's leadership or its financial reporting. Shortly after his announcement, Bloomberg reported that Tesla's chief people officer, Gabrielle Toledano, would not return to the company after a leave of absence. Recreational marijuana is legal in California.

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.

The appearance was the latest unorthodox move by Musk, who has often surprised investors with brash and unpredictable behavior as Tesla has sought to live up to lofty manufacturing targets for its Model 3 electric auto. But Musk also said this isn't really a priority, and he also dismissed the concept of a flying vehicle as impractical.

Why did a rich man who wants to transport mankind to Mars and fix Los Angeles' traffic issues with an underground tunnel even go on Joe Rogan's podcast?

At that, Rubio paused to look at Jones and said, "This dude's weird, man". "You're not going to silence me". Rubio eventually ended the gaggle to return to committee, leaving the reporters to "talk to this clown".

Elon Musk took a drag on a joint during his interview with former UFC commentator Joe Rogan.

He went on to say that running Tesla was the "hardest" job he has: "It's very difficult to keep a auto company alive".

I'm not a regular smoker of weed.

In August he told the New York Times that he worked "120-hour weeks" and took sedatives.

Rouhani: Iran will export crude oil despite US pressure
A second phase of sanctions targeting Iran's crucial oil industry and banking sector will be reinstated on November 5. Beijing, for its part, has threatened to retaliate with $60 billion worth of new duties on USA imports to China .

"The podcast host asked his guest: "'You probably can't do this because of stockholders, right?" but Musk asked, "I mean it's legal, right?" and accepted, taking a puff. I don't find that it's very good for productivity.

His comments came as Musk drew questions of late over his leadership and demeanor. Later Musk says he doesn't notice any effect from the joint, which he claims he rarely smokes.

And engineers are not the only culprits, Starship Technologies' food-delivery robots are sometimes kicked by members of the public, the company's cofounder told Business Insider in June.
