Five Takeaways From Elon Musk’s Wild ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ Interview

09 September, 2018, 01:26 | Author: Martin Tyler
  • Musk told Rogan that he's not a regular weed smoker

"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".

Tesla on Friday also saw the recent departure of its chief accounting officer, Dave Morton, and its head of human resources, Gabrielle Toledano, according to The Verge.

Elon Musk, the billionaire chief executive of Tesla, risked provoking fresh concern from investors on Friday after smoking marijuana on a live web show with U.S. comedian Joe Rogan.

The departures came after CEO Elon Musk gave a wide-ranging, almost three-hour interview to podcast host Joe Rogan and addressed topics ranging from his job at Tesla to the the end of the world.

Following Musk's pot smoking performance during a live podcast show with comedian Joe Rogan, reports have emerged that the Air Force was conducting an investigation into SpaceX CEO's behavior.

Musk has said the company is producing more than 5,000 Model 3 electric cars per week, and cash generated from the sales will bring sustained quarterly profits.

He said: "I love lean; it's great". "It's just a part of something that's going to continue to help make me who I am". Miller was set to embark on a cross-country tour in support of Swimming in late October.

Tesla is under extreme pressure to turn a sustained net profit starting this quarter, as promised by Mr Musk.

This follows other bad news for Tesla, and Musk coming under fire for things including what he says on Twitter.

That may have provided some relief to those betting on the company's decline ー on Thursday, it was reported that prolific short seller Andrew Left of Citron Research was filing suit against Tesla and Musk for the now-infamous "funding secured" tweet in early August.

Musk's Twitter followers went into a frenzy following the podcast, with user @jkmcnk writing:"Elon getting high on weed and whiskey is the first reason to go long on $TSLA in a while".

The attention intensified overnight after his interview with Rogan, where the repartee included an exchange over what Musk was smoking.

Then, Musk appears to take a hit as Rogan continues explaining that there's tobacco and marijuana inside.

Keys locks another U.S. Open semi-final
Until Osaka's run this year, the best NY performance by a Japanese woman was 2004 when Shinobu Asagoe reached the quarterfinals. Open semifinals and the first to reach any Grand Slam semifinal since Kimiko Date did it in 1996 at Wimbledon.

Musk didn't appear to be doing anything illegal because recreational use of marijuana is legal in the state of California.

In an interview with The New York Times, Musk denied the allegations.

Last month's "go private" plan caused Tesla's shares to spike upward, but when the idea fizzled, the stock took a beating. "Every now and again I get drawn in and it's not good, you can make some mistakes".

In July, Musk raised eyebrows when he accused British diver Vern Unsworth - who aided in the rescue of 12 boys and their coach in Thailand cave this summer - of being a "pedo" or pedophile in a tweet.
