Tesla CEO Elon Musk smoked weed and took whiskey during interview a recent Interview with Joe Rogan.
Elon Musk appeared on “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast on Thursday night, where he discussed a wide range of topics including his tweeting behavior, his Boring Co.’s flamethrowers, and “neuralink” devices that could connect brains to computers.
During the interview, Elon Musk stunned his board of directors and indeed the world when he sipped whiskey and smoked marijuana during a 2 1/2-hour podcast.
After discussing Musk’s enterprises, the Boring Company’s flamethrower fundraising stunt, and his car collection, which includes a Ford Model T and Jaguar E-type, Rogan turned to one of his own favorite topics: cannabis.
“Is that a joint?” Musk queried as Rogan began to light up a blunt he had nearby. “Or is it a cigar?”
Rogan explained to Musk that the object in hand was a mixture of tobacco and marijuana, describing it as “perfect and balanced.” When Rogan asked Musk if he had tried cannabis before, Musk stated that he thinks he “tried one once.”
“You probably can’t because of stockholders,” Rogan asked as Musk chuckled. Much to everyone’s surprise, Musk responded with: “I mean it’s legal, right?”
Musk said in his closing statement;
“I think people should be nicer to each other,”
“It’s easy to demonize people and you’re usually wrong about it. People are nicer than you think.”
