Shares of electric carmaker Tesla Inc. fell more than 6 percent early Friday after the company's accounting chief left after just a month on the job -- and after CEO Elon Musk appeared to smoke marijuana during an interview.
Musk appeared on "The Joe Rogan Experience" overnight. About two hours into the podcast, which can be seen on YouTube, Musk inhales from what the host says is a combined marijuana-tobacco joint, which Rogan notes is legal.
"You probably can't because of stockholders, right?" Rogan says, before passing the blunt to Musk, who also takes a sip of whiskey.
Shortly after smoking, Musk looks at his phone and laughs, telling Rogan he was getting texts from friends asking why he was smoking weed during the interview. Later Musk says he doesn't notice any effect from the joint, which he claims he rarely smokes.
