Tesla rocked by executive departures, Musk web show

Elon Musk hits massive blunt in live interview

Meanwhile, investors were digesting a video, associated with a podcast, in which Elon Musk appeared to smoke a marijuana-tobacco combination, which is legal in California but nevertheless came as Tesla directors have expressed concern about Musk's behavior.

Outside of the reefer madness, the duo chatted about everything from China to humanity to artificial intelligence in the two-and-a-half-hour podcast.

"I'm getting text messages from friends saying, 'What the hell are you doing smoking weed?'" Musk added after smoking.

The spot on one of the most popular podcasts in the US marks Musk's first appearance in a public forum since he stunned the financial world last month with his short-lived effort to take Tesla private.

However, during an interview for The New York Times, Mr. Musk criticized the use of the drug while denying it had anything to do with attempting to take Tesla private.

He even described the constant flow of ideas in his mind as "a never ending explosion" and said that as a young boy he anxious he might be "insane" as it did not seem to happen to others around him. "I don't think people would like it that much". Tesla and its CEO are now also facing a litany of lawsuits claiming market manipulation, including one filed Thursday by Andrew Left, the founder of Citron Research and prominent short seller.

After asking whether it was legal, Musk then took the joint and smoked it himself on camera. "I don't find that it is very good for productivity". "You probably can't, 'cause of stockholders, right?"

Some Wall Street analysts called again for the company to appoint another senior leader for the company to take the pressure off Musk, or rein in his control.

Musk later brightened and said, "This may sound corny, but love is the answer. We think this is further evidence that the time is now for management and the Board to address these issues", Albertine said.

"The interesting thing about an electric plane is that you want to go as high as possible, but you need a certain energy density in the battery pack, because you have to overcome gravitational potential energy", Musk said.
