Elon Musk Insists He’s Not “On Weed”


by Sandra Song

Elon Musk wants you to know that he is not "on weed."

In an interview with The New York Times, Musk attempted to explain his controversial tweet about taking Tesla private. At $420 a share, no less. 

This set off intense speculation surrounding Musk's hash habit. However, he was quick to shoot down the theory during his interview. 

Claiming that he chose the $420 figure because "it seemed like better karma" (???) than $419, Musk also insisted that he was "not on weed" at the time. Why though?

"Weed is not helpful for productivity," he said. "There’s a reason for the word ‘stoned.’ You just sit there like a stone on weed.” 

Yep, this guy's definitely never smoked before. Read Musk's entire interview here.
