The CEO of electric-car maker Tesla and rocket startup SpaceX Elon Musk spent more than two-and-a-half hours Thursday night talking to podcast host Joe Rogan about his car company and trying to get governments to regulate artificial intelligence.
Rogan told Musk about a small container he bought in Mexico that he had hoped would hold joints. Rogan then took out a large spliff and lit up.
“I mean, it’s legal, right?” Musk said, accepting a lit blunt from Rogan in the Los Angeles studio where “The Joe Rogan Experience” is webcast live. Rogan told Musk he’d rolled marijuana in tobacco leaves. Musk took a single deep toke.
“I got text messages from friends asking, ‘What the hell are you doing smoking weed?’” he told Joe Rogan during the show.
The interview took place in California where Marijuana is legal for medical and recreational. The two men also drank whiskey during the interview, and Musk pointed out that alcohol is also a drug.
