Tesla CEO, Billionaire Elon Musk Smokes Marijuana During Interview

The CEO of electric-car maker Tesla (TSLA) and rocket startup SpaceX spent more than two-and-a-half hours Thursday night talking to podcast host Joe Rogan about what it's like inside his head ("a never-ending explosion"), keeping a car company in business ("very difficult") and trying to get governments to regulate artificial intelligence ("nobody listened").
Musk has come under heavy pressure in recent weeks over his botched attempt to take Tesla private and his erratic behavior. But in the interview with Rogan, which was streamed on YouTube, he appeared at ease.

The South African-born entrepreneur wielded a flamethrower, unsheathed a Samurai sword and held forth on a wide range of subjects: Musk touched on the difficulties of having the kind of brain that has enabled him to build and run multiple high-tech companies at the same time.

"I don't think you'd necessarily want to be me," he said. "I don't think people would like it that much."
The inside of his head is like "a never-ending explosion" with ideas bouncing around all the time, he said, adding that he finds it "very hard" to turn his brain off. Running Tesla is his "hardest" job, he told Rogan.

The car company has struggled to scale up production of its Model 3 sedan, which has been hit by a number of delays, intensifying the pressure on Musk.
"It's very difficult to keep a car company alive," he said.
Musk raised eyebrows on social media after accepting what Rogan said was a joint of marijuana and tobacco and taking a puff. "I mean, it's legal, right?" he asked.
Marijuana is legal in California, where the interview took place, but Musk's phone later started buzzing. "I'm getting text messages from friends saying, 'What the hell are you doing smoking weed?'" he said.

Musk explained that he's "not a regular smoker of weed" because he "doesn't find it's very good for productivity."

"It's like a cup of coffee in reverse," he added.
Musk already alarmed some Tesla investors by admitting in an emotional interview last month with The New York Times that he takes the prescription drug Ambien because he has difficulty sleeping.
He has denied he was smoking weed when he sent his now infamous tweet on August 7 claiming he had secured funding to take Tesla private.
