Tesla erupts in chaos after senior executives leave and Musk's online interview

Elon Musk hits massive blunt in live interview

How the company fares in the debt market is important because it faces looming cash needs and has shown reluctance in recent years to issue new shares, as opposed to various types of bonds. As of midday Friday, more than 1.5 million users had checked out his chat with Musk. The podcast was two and a half hours long, but social media quickly focused on the brief second of smoking.

But it was the puff of smoke that got the headlines.

Towards the end, Rogan lit what he described as a joint containing tobacco and cannabis - which is legal in California - and offered it to Musk. I think Joe might, however, be right about the stockholders.

"I Mean, It's Legal!"

"Defendant Musk artificially manipulated the price of Tesla securities with objectively false tweets in order to "burn" the company's short-sellers", Left said, stressing that Musk's actions violated federal securities laws.

Musk also warned about humans' dependence on fossil fuels, which he called " the dumbest experiment in human history". Then the conversation morphed into the science-fiction side of autonomous cars.

Actor Burt Reynolds has died at 82
No matter the role, Reynolds always tended to play lovable rascals, something he knew audiences expected of him. In his colorful career Reynolds secured more than his share of both good and bad press.

Minutes later the phone in Musk's pocket began sending out alerts.

"You getting text messages from chicks?"

Musk goes on to say that alcohol's really a drug too, but that it's been grandfathered in, which leads Rogan to extol the virtues of alcohol in moderation. He added that he "almost never" smoked marijuana. During the at-times awkward back and forth, Musk spilled upcoming plans for an electric airplane while sharing whiskey and a joint with host Joe Rogan. Midday, Tesla shares were trading 6.4 percent lower at $262.90.

Musk said last month that he is no fan of marijuana, arguing that it kills productivity.

The company, hurt in the past month by Musk's high-profile U-turn on a deal to take it private, said Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton resigned, citing discomfort with the level of public attention and pace.

"I think the future in where we are a space-faring civilization out there among the stars, that is very exciting", Musk said. "As a result, this caused me to reconsider my future".
