Elon Musk smoking weed with Joe Rogan during podcast

Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk could face a possible investigation by the United State Air Force after he appeared to smoke weed during an entertaining appearance on the Joe Rogan podcast last Thursday.

CNBC citing a Pentagon official reported that the U.S. Airforce was looking into whether the 47-year-old billionaire had violated his security clearance when he apparently took a “hit” of a joint filled with tobacco and marijuana during Rogan’s podcast.

Elon Musk and Rogan also drank whiskey while discussing a wide variety of subjects including the dangers of artificial intelligence, drug use, and whether we are living in a simulated reality during the wild two-and-a-half hour show.

Although an official investigation has not been initiated, Air Force officials were reviewing the podcast to determine whether Musk violated his security clearance, the Daily Mail reported.

Musk’s aerospace company SpaceX is contracted by the Pentagon to launch satellites into space.

The Pentagon strictly prohibits individuals with U.S. security clearance from engaging in drug use.

The Tesla founder’s nonchalant weed smoking and booze drinking during the podcast also had a negative effect on Wall Street.

Tesla company shares plunged 9 percent on Friday after the podcast aired followed by a pair of C-suite executive resignations.

The appearance also further fueled concerns by board members over his recreational drug use.

According to a New York Times report, board members were aware and concerned over Musk’s use of Ambien and other unspecified “recreational drugs.”
