Elon Musk was on Joe Rogan’s YouTube podcast on Thursday night, puffing his way back into the spotlight, this time for reportedly smoking pot during a live stream.

The billionaire Tesla CEO, who said he “almost never” smokes marijuana, shared what appeared to be a lit joint with Rogan in the webcast which lasted nearly three hours, The Los Angeles Times reported.

The two had already been knocking back Old Camp whiskey on ice and were deep in conversation for two hours when Rogan lit up the blunt and offered it to Musk in his Los Angeles studio.

“I mean, it’s legal, right?” Musk said, accepting the joint and taking a puff.

“I’m not a regular smoker of weed,” he told Rogan, according to the Times. “I know a lot of people like weed and that’s fine but I don’t think it’s very good for productivity.”

As the effects of the marijuana appeared to kick in, the conversation steered towards space travel and Musk’s goal to colonize Mars.

At one-point Rogan suggested they terra-farm Mars and “turn it into a big Jamaica,” the Times noted.

“That would be great,” Musk replied between giggles.

The podcast wrapped up at 12:15 a.m. Friday and as it drew to a close, Rogan turned to Musk and said he hoped he didn’t “weird” him out.

“And I hope you didn’t get mad that we smoked weed,” he added, to which Musk smiled.

There was no mention of the pot smoking from Musk’s side Friday morning when he shared a link to the webcast via Twitter, but his followers were quick to bring it up.

The incident thrust Musk back into the spotlight days after he made headlines for calling Thai cave rescue diver, Vermon Unsworth, a “child rapist.”
