Last month, Elon Musk smoked cannabis during a live web interview in California. When comedian Joe Rogan, who was interviewing Musk, offered him a joint, the Tesla CEO asked if it was legal before smoking it. This event provoked fresh controversy and, one day later, two of Tesla senior executives quit the company, whose shares crashed 6%. Tesla’s head of accounting, Dave Morton, stated that he was leaving the company because “the level of public attention placed on the company [has] exceeded my expectations.”
