Billionaire Elon Musk provoked another twitter storm by briefly smoking marijuana on a live comedy podcast.

Musk spent two-and-a-half hours on a podcast late Thursday discussing everything from AI and its impact on humankind to social media.
Taking a puff from a joint – which Rogan said was a blend of tobacco and marijuana and legal in California – Musk said he “almost never” smoked. “I’m not a regular smoker of weed,” Musk said. “I don’t actually notice any effect…I don’t find that it is very good for productivity,” he said.
Following his stunt, this is how Twitter reacted:
Interesting to watch Elon Musk trying to do PR repair on Joe Rogan. "Hey, look, I'm smoking the marijuana! I'm a cool guy! Forget all those things I said about that cave diver just last week…"
