Elon Musk smokes a blunt live on You Tube with podcaster Joe Rogan

Elon Musk chairman and CEO at Tesla and chairman of SpaceX inhales what he said was marijuana on a live You Tube webcast Thursday night

Elon Musk has smoked marijuana in an interview with podcaster Joe Rogan, which was broadcast live.

Tesla shares, down just one percent after Musk's appearance on the Rogan podcast, fell another seven percent in the half hour after Morton's resignation.

During a podcast that was shown on YouTube, CEO Elon Musk inhales from what the host says is a combined marijuana-tobacco joint.

"I mean it's legal, right?"

Tesla was not immediately available for comment.

He told Rogan he thinks that merging humans with computers is the approach that "seems probably the best for us: if you can't beat it, join it".

Elon Musk has added another bit of freakish behaviour to the list by smoking a joint during a live interview.

Along with his electric auto company, Musk heads up space exploration firm Space X, tunnel construction firm The Boring Company, and Neuralink, which works on augmenting human brains with artificial intelligence. Marijuana is legal in California, where the interview took place. "It is sort of like a cup of coffee in reverse". Last month, Musk ignited controversy by announcing on Twitter that a deal to take Tesla private was all but certain, only to abandon the plan 17 days later.

The auto 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.

"Am considering taking Tesla private at $420".

Tesla Inc.'s chief accounting officer, Dave Morton, left the company after less than a month on the job, citing the level of public attention on the electric-car maker and saying the pace within the company had exceeded his expectations. "An electric plane isn't important right now".

"A lot of people don't like humanity and think it is a blight, but I don't", he said.

Musk covered topics in the interview ranging Tesla and SpaceX to what he perceives are the dangers of artificial intelligence.

He said accomplishing things and being useful to others kept him going, as he urged others to spend less time on social media.
