NASA said it has no proof of drug use at Elon Musk's SpaceX.
"The agency does not have evidence of non-compliance from SpaceX on how the company addresses the drug- and alcohol-free workforce regulations," NASA said Thursday in a statement, according to Bloomberg. "We expect our commercial partners to meet all workplace safety requirements in the execution of those missions and the services they provide the American people."
NASA said alcohol- and drug-free workplace contract clauses stipulate that contractors maintain a "robust and effective" corporate culture and safety program, Bloomberg noted.
The statement came after The Wall Street Journal reported that some high-ranking SpaceX officials were worried about Musk's drug use.
Musk, the world's wealthiest person, has used LSD, cocaine, ecstasy, and psychedelic mushrooms, often at parties where attendees sign nondisclosure agreements, according to the Journal.
He's also smoked marijuana in public and has claimed he received a prescription for the anesthetic ketamine, the The Wall Street Journal noted.
Alex Spiro, a lawyer for Musk, said the Journal article contained "false facts."
In a Friday post on X, Musk wrote: "I and all employees of SpaceX passed random drug testing for years. NASA received all those results."
