Elon Musk's Joke Isn't Funny Any More

Tesla chief Elon Musk smokes marijuana on live web show

Another high-level Tesla official has left the electric automaker, amid struggles to meet production goals and negative publicity surrounding founder Elon Musk. Once Rogan clarified that it was indeed weed rolled in tobacco leaf, Musk feigned experience, exclaiming "I think I tried one once", behind a series of quick head nods.

Toledano, who has been on leave of absence from the company, said she would not be returning to the company.

Tesla Inc shares fell almost nine percent on Friday as the resignation of its chief accounting officer after just a month at work spooked investors amid another social media storm around billionaire chief executive Elon Musk.

Proudly unconventional entrepreneur Elon Musk spent most of an online interview, streamed live Thursday night, pontificating and joking around with podcast host Joe Rogan, who showered him with adulation for his brilliance.

Musk said he was not as anxious about artificial intelligence than he was previously after "taking a more fatalistic attitude". Indeed, Tesla's board is rumored to be searching for another executive to help Musk.

Musk has come under heavy pressure in recent weeks over his botched attempt to take Tesla private and his erratic behavior. As of midday Friday, more than 1.5 million users had checked out his chat with Musk. On Rogan's podcast, Musk made news by apparently taking a hit off Rogan's marijuana.

After the markets closed Friday, Tesla published a blog post by Musk that announced the promotions of seven Tesla employees, promised new products and asked his company's supporters to ignore negative media reports.

Musk took the already-lit blunt from Rogan and had one puff, but it appears that he did not inhale, meaning he likely did not feel the effects of marijuana. Marijuana is legal in California, where the interview took place.

In August, Musk told The New York Times he was exhausted from too much work and difficulty sleeping in an interview that sharpened questions about his mental stability.

Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton tendered his resignation this past Tuesday according to an 8K filing that was released early this morning before trading opened up.

Not only did Musk not have any kind of written funding deal, many Tesla investors saw little upside in approving a deal that would reduce Tesla's transparency and the liquidity of Tesla stock. I appreciate his ingenuity and creativity and we like the Tesla products we own.

Daniel Sparks owns shares of Tesla. As for recreational drugs, he has used them "on occasion", sources said. Meanwhile Musk somehow can't stop accusing one of the cave divers who rescued those trapped children in Thailand of being a pedophile.
