Tesla CEO Elon Musk has smoked marijuana live on the web during the podcast “Joe Rogan Experience”.
Rogan offered his guest the drug, which is legal in California, as the pair discussed tech innovation and the public’s perception of Musk.
The exchange began when Rogan told Musk about a small container he bought in Mexico which he hoped would hold joints. He then took out a large joint and lit up.
“I mean, it’s legal, right?” Musk asked, before taking a drag on the joint.
“It’s marijuana inside of tobacco,” said Rogan, and asked if Musk had ever had it.
“Yeah I think I tried one once,” Musk replied.
Last month, Musk said he was not “on weed” when he tweeted about plans to make Tesla a private firm. He also said he works “120-hour weeks” and takes sedatives.
Musk said he is no fan of the drug. He said: “Weed is not helpful for productivity. There’s a reason for the word ‘stoned.’ You just sit there like a stone on weed.”
