Tesla's Elon Musk provoked another Twitter storm on Friday by briefly smoking marijuana on a live web show with comedian Joe Rogan. It said Mr Morton had no disagreements with Tesla's leadership or financial reporting.

More seriously for Tesla, Musk startled investors for tweeting on August 7 that he planned to take the company private, only to suddenly reverse those plans weeks later.

Rogan pulled out a joint in the middle of the interview, leading Musk to wonder if it was a tobacco cigar or cannabis.

CAO David Morton joined the team August 6 and provided notice of his immediate resignation September 4, according to a company 8-K filing.

In an interview with The New York Times shortly afterward, Musk said he didn't smoke weed before he tweeted. As for the figure, Musk said that $420 "seemed like better karma" than $419. "I don't actually notice any effect.I don't find that it is very good for productivity".

It was the latest in a string of unconventional behavior by the billionaire South African native who is also CEO of rocket startup SpaceX. Later, Tesla's eccentric CEO tweeted that he was negotiating the go-private deal with buyout firm Silver Lake, investment bank Goldman Sachs and several other firms, including the Saudi Arabian government.
