Shares of electric auto 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 Tesla entrepreneur spoke about artificial intelligence, colonising space and the need to "give love a chance".
Elon Musk has added another bit of freakish behaviour to the list by smoking a joint during a live interview.
"I don't think you would necessarily want to be me - you wouldn't like it that much", Musk told Rogan during the live-streamed podcast.
When Rogan aid "totally", Musk said "OK" and took a drag.
Musk has come under heavy pressure in recent weeks over his botched attempt to take Tesla private and his erratic behavior. One big reason is that his brain is a "a never-ending explosion" of ideas that he finds hard to turn off, per CNN.
"The vast majority of negative comments, I just ignore them", he said.

Tesla shares plummeted Friday after two executives announced their departures from the company and video of Elon Musk smoking weed and drinking whiskey on a popular podcast began to circulate on social media.
"Weed is not helpful for productivity".
"It's like a cup of coffee in reverse", he added.
He told Rogan he thinks that merging humans with computers is the approach that "seems probably the best for us: if you can't beat it, join it".
Musk said he is less anxious about AI than he had been, mostly due to "taking a more fatalistic attitude".
According to the lawsuit, filed on Thursday in San Francisco federal court, false and misleading information, issued by Musk, harmed short-sellers and those believing Tesla's stock price would rise.
Musk has said the company is producing more than 5,000 Model 3 electric cars per week, and cash generated from the sales will bring sustained quarterly profits.
"If we were forever constrained to Earth, that would not be a good future". "Do people get upset at you if you do certain things?"
