Tesla CEO Elon Musk Smokes Weed During Joe Rogan Podcast Interview | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC

Puritanical witch hunts in 2018.

Francis Crick (one of the two men responsible for discovering the double helix structure of DNA), was either under the influence of LSD at the time of his revelation, and/or used the drug to help with his thought processes during his research.

Michel Sakakini · September 8, 2018 at 5:43 am

Wake up MSNBC, you are out of touch with the reality of the people. Its only a blunt, nobody gives a fun in fact people like him even more for that.

Brian Sharp · September 8, 2018 at 5:45 am

Elon for President 2020!

So…he gets this attention from smoking??? Isnt weed like LEGAL now! Its not like he was having alcohol! And in any case both are legal…they sell beer at kids amusement parks you know (i.e Disneyland) so drinking in public is out the door!

Wise Chi · September 8, 2018 at 5:48 am

Its overly insensical that this led to a drop, especially when the cannabis industry is set to rise soon and the fact that 60% of the united states, about six-in-ten americans voice it should be legal, also followed by the global spendings on legal cannabis being expected to expand 230% to 32 Billion in 2020. Unmistakably any shareholders with a similar perspective are beating their heads against the wall with such an unconventional attitude even paired with Elon's own thoughts of the drug himself, surely vilifiers are grasping at straws in this point of time, and honestly come on its Elon if anyone deserves a pass, even for a day its certainly him. The inferior critics whether they're supporters or non-supporters of cannabis should not make inadequate decisions without at least considering the future in general on a more broad spectrum to where it may lead them, and undoubtly when its Elon Musk who is leading the way.

Much ado about nothing!

Old people love to hate on weed. the mans net worth is 18 billion dollars. If he smokes weed and drinks liquor, good for him. cheers mate

Avenger77420 · September 8, 2018 at 5:55 am

The BroNation · September 8, 2018 at 6:03 am

compulsiverambler · September 8, 2018 at 6:13 am

He's drinking alcohol in that interview, that's MUCH MORE cognitively impairing nd therefore unprofessional than cannabis

Corina Amato · September 8, 2018 at 6:14 am

Hey master rjournalists, that's a blunt yo, not a joint. Get with it. He's the richest man in the world and its legal. Who freaking cares. Get a life. Stay calm and smoke weed. I can see the headlines now, rich man has a glass of wine, yikes!

Rene' Achterberg · September 8, 2018 at 6:20 am

Hamid Adibzadeh · September 8, 2018 at 6:30 am

Although I don't like drug and smoke, but he is human like us, judging is not cool 🙂

PelaajaW · September 8, 2018 at 6:30 am


Jackson Wright · September 8, 2018 at 6:32 am

who tf cares

Orlando Da Silva · September 8, 2018 at 6:36 am

Her body language when announcing the story speaks volumes. This woman has been in a few hot boxes.

James Simpson · September 8, 2018 at 6:37 am

😂😂😂 all these news outlets are burying themselves 😂😂😂

Drogo Baggins · September 8, 2018 at 6:44 am

There are good reasons not to invest with a pot head. Very smart greedy security annalists have considered every part of human behavior when it comes to leading a business and they know what's what. A stoner means that a company's value will drop like a rock.

BIGARMADA1988 · September 8, 2018 at 6:46 am

Why is this news?

Diego Paz · September 8, 2018 at 6:47 am

Support Elon!

22allwanted · September 8, 2018 at 6:51 am

Sepro 007 · September 8, 2018 at 7:02 am

So someone can’t hit a joint now cause they are rich and famous… what

Tina Haynes · September 8, 2018 at 7:06 am

You do you, Elon. No one's gonna hate you for smoking a 50/50. 😉😁

Creepy Lil' Llama · September 8, 2018 at 7:07 am

WOW a man does what he legally is allowed to do HMMM WHAT A SENSATION

Leonardo DaVinci · September 8, 2018 at 7:10 am

Lol he's gonna become more popular if anything

Gerdi Bot · September 8, 2018 at 7:12 am

Smoke a joint everyone hates you… Crash the world economy .. get multi million dollar bonuses. Capitalism is love

just Relax · September 8, 2018 at 7:18 am

Once you smoke a blunt, you can't get enough.. Slice of heaven.

Assyl Yacine · September 8, 2018 at 7:32 am


Mr Cortez · September 8, 2018 at 7:35 am

So what they say about MSNBC is true.

Kristi Marie · September 8, 2018 at 7:35 am

What was up with that "homeboy" remark? Elon Musk is a nerd, he has no homeboys around him. Ohhhh, wait it's because she thinks all black people smoke pot and act like the Chris Tucker and Ice Cube in "Friday". Strangely racist for MSNBC, seems more like a Fox News sort of thing.

Raheem Raji · September 8, 2018 at 7:54 am

He’s a billionaire and well they’re loser who hate on him for getting high

what what · September 8, 2018 at 7:55 am

Jeremy · September 8, 2018 at 7:57 am

This guy works a 120 hours a week, if you wants to take a puff off a joint to relax then whatever…….

Nasim · September 8, 2018 at 7:59 am
