At one point, Musk and Rogan shared a spliff, though Musk said doesn't make a habit of smoking weed, which he called "a cup of coffee in reverse".

The 47-year-old billionaire later said he wasn't a "regular smoker" of marijuana because he doesn't find it "very good for productivity". "I want to be clear that I believe strongly in Tesla, its mission, and its future prospects, and I have no disagreements with Tesla's leadership or its financial reporting", he continued.

Tesla representatives were not immediately available for comment Friday morning.

On Friday, two top executives left Tesla, including chief accounting officer Dave Morton, who resigned after less than a month on the job, citing the "public attention" on the company. Midday, Tesla shares were trading 6.4 percent lower at $262.90.

"I'm not saying it's going to be successful", Musk said, though he noted it has already dug a mile-long tunnel under the streets of Los Angeles.

In the month since Musk's now infamous "going private " tweet, Tesla has lost almost one-third of its value, prompting even long-time bullish analysts to urge the board to consider major changes to its executive lineup and relieve the CEO of some of his "banal" day-to-day duties of running a public company.

The New York Times headline soon after avoided all of the usual gushing descriptors and simply said, "Elon Musk Thinks He Can Fix Everything". As for the figure, Musk said that $420 "seemed like better karma" than $419.

"His actions directly affect Tesla's share price because Elon is Tesla".

Morton and Toledano, whose departures come shortly after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission opened an inquiry into Musk's aborted privatization plan, join dozens of senior executives who have left Tesla.

The tumult comes as Tesla has been ramping up production of its Model 3 electric vehicle, which is seen as a make-or-break effort for the company.

On August 8, the SEC launched an investigation into Musk's tweet, and investors have launched at least two lawsuits, including one on Thursday, according to the AP. Friday was also slated to be the last day for Sarah O'Brien, Tesla's vice president of communications, whose departure was announced last month.
