There’s been a lot of buzz around Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk lately, mostly because he smoked a blunt on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast with the titular host on Thursday night.
But why has a casual toke blown up the internet?
Well, the very next day, Tesla stocks tumbled to its lowest point in almost a year, but it probably wasn’t all due to Elon Musk’s cannabis use- although the media is sure making it seem like it.
Tesla also had some high profile C-suite resignations on Friday- Chief People Officer Gabrielle Toledano and Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton– but of course Elon Musk’s cannabis use dominated the headlines, and often not in a good way with some news outlets questioning Elon’s mental health for the sheer audacity of smoking a joint on a live broadcast.
Oh no, the horror!
The toke seen around the world is already being added to the list of Elon’s recent erratic behaviour. This is a textbook example of the cannabis stigma that still exists in the mainstream and it’s telling that in an almost 3-hour long interview where Elon Musk discusses AI and the nature of reality and the universe while also brandishing a samurai sword and drinking whiskey- smoking some cannabis is what’s got everyone freaking out.
