Shares of electric vehicle maker Tesla Inc. fell more than 6 per cent early Friday after the CEO appeared to smoke marijuana during an interview and the company's accounting chief left after a month on the job.

The episode also raised concern about Musk's health. Musk said, accepting a lit blunt from Rogan in the Los Angeles studio, where "The Joe Rogan Experience" is webcast live.

Aside from the weed, Musk also touted a couple weapons on the show's set, including a flamethrower and a Katana that Rogan claims is hundreds of years old.

Asked by Musk whether it was legal to smoke, Rogan assured him that it was, then asked: "How does that work?" The chairman and CEO of both Tesla and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., among other companies, gave an emotional interview to the New York Times in which he said friends were anxious about exhaustion. One big reason is that his brain is a "a never-ending explosion" of ideas that he finds hard to turn off, per CNN. "I don't think people would like it that much".

More seriously for Tesla, Musk startled investors for tweeting on August 7 that he planned to take the company private, only to suddenly reverse those plans weeks later. Musk responded with, "I mean it's legal, right?" "We think this is further evidence that the time is now for management and the Board to address these issues", Albertine said.
