Tesla stock drops after its CEO went on a podcast, smoked weed, used a flamethrower

Hosted by

Tesla CEO Elon Musk went on Joe Rogan’s podcast Thursday night. He smoked weed and used a flamethrower, and talked about all kinds of things: LA traffic, the end of the universe, virtual reality, why other people wouldn’t want to be him. The interview comes after Musk’s talks about privatizing Tesla. Now the company’s stock has dropped, and two senior executives are leaving.
