Tesla stock falls as CEO appears to smoke marijuana on video
AP ^ | 9/7/2018 | TOM KRISHER

Shares of electric car maker Tesla Inc. fell more than 6 percent early Friday after the CEO appeared to smoke marijuana during an interview and the company’s accounting chief left after a month on the job.

CEO Elon Musk appeared on “The Joe Rogan Experience” overnight. About two hours into the podcast, which can be seen on YouTube, Musk inhales from what the host says is a combined marijuana-tobacco joint, which Rogan notes is legal. Rogan passes the joint to Musk, who also takes a sip of whiskey.

Shortly after smoking, Musk looks at his phone and laughs, telling Rogan he was getting texts from friends asking why he was smoking weed during the interview. Later Musk says he doesn’t notice any effect from the joint, which he claims he rarely smokes.

I suspect the stock isn’t falling because he smoked a joint. They are falling because there are all kinds of stories that he is acting like a lunatic and may be mentally unstable to the point where the board is questioning his sanity.

Yellow journalism? How about pot smoke stain? The idiot is trying to destroy his own company and this is only the latest example, one that might explain many of the others. If Tesla and his other companies have a future, they need to fire Musk.

Do you think that the interviewer, who offered him the joint, is in on it?

Possible motive?

His bizarre behavior regarding the diver who helped rescue the stranded boys in the cave proves he’s unhinged. He attacks the guy, repeatedly calling him a pedo without any evidence to back his claim...then he apologizes, and then weeks later attacks the guy again saying he’s a pedo. Who in their right mind does that?

One way to handle the stress of being the CEO of a billion-dollar company is to blow up your company by saying incredibly irresponsible things and then going on TV and smoking pot. No more company, no more shareholders, no more sleepless nights.

Very possible.
Clearly a visionary but he needs a strong Board of Directors to get him re-focused.

From my understanding, a lot of foreigners go to Thailand for underage sex tourism. A Brit living in Thailand invites speculation as to his motives for being there.

Arthur C Clarke, for example, was a pervert who lived in that region of the world precisely because it gave him access to young boys, and apparently the laws there were indulgent of it.

I won't say he has good reasons for accusing the British diver of being a pedophile, but it also isn't just a random rant out of the blue. They guy is probably perfectly innocent for wanting to live in a third world environment full of people selling their children to foreigners, but it does make people wonder.

But yeah, Musk is a nut for voicing that conclusion without better proof than the man's presence in that country.

Musk turned down the invitation into the "club".

Now it's a full on assault to destroy him.

You think the other ass hats in Silicon Valley don't have bad behaviors to report?

Don't be manipulated by the cabal and their tools in media and entertainment.

The interviewer would not have done that if he didn’t know Musk would accept it or not be offended by the offer.
