So it’s been a crazy week on the internet this week. I came across this golden meme of Elon Musk, yes, Tesla CEO Elon F*** Musk, smoking Weed on the Joe Rogan Podcast.
Shout out to the editor of this dank meme.

I think my favourite part about this clip is the ending when Elon musk says “I think I tried this once” got me and the rest of the internet laughing on the inside.
But, not everyone thinks it’s all fun and games. Primarily Tesla stockholders and financial analysts. The stock dropped 9 percent the morning after the interview, and this is all coming within a tough stretch for the automaker.
A month ago Musk hinted he wanted to take the company private again, then later took it back.
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk was on The Joe Rogan Experience on Thursday night, and in the 2 ½ hour discussion, they touched on a range of issues, which all seemed to come back to why Elon Musk is such a doggone genius.
He has been described as having a “never-ending explosion” of ideas. Like flamethrowers and rocketships and superfast cars. Lots of people have never-ending explosions of ideas like that. They’re called 8 year old boys.
So what happened ? How did this unfold?
Well basically, after discussing the artistic and engineering merits of wristwatches, Rogan brought out a blunt, telling Musk that it was a mix of tobacco and marijuana. “You ever had that?” Rogan asked, noting that Musk probably had not smoked one “because of stockholders.”
“I mean, it’s legal, right?” Musk asked before taking a puff. The show took place in California, where recreational marijuana consumption is legal.

Tesla’s stock closed down more than 6 percent Friday.
