Elon Musk will have to lay off the booze and pot if he wants to continue doing work for NASA, the agency’s chief warned this week, while laying into the SpaceX founder for his recent erratic behavior. “I will tell you that was not helpful, and that did not inspire confidence, and the leaders of these organizations need to take that as an example of what to do when you lead an organization that’s going to launch American astronauts,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstein said Thursday during a meeting at NASA’s headquarters in Washington, DC, The Atlantic reported.
Bridenstein said he’s spoken with the South African-born Tesla founder, who promised he’d be changing his ways after being caught on video sipping a whiskey on the rocks and taking a hit from a joint on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast in September. The show is filmed in California, where marijuana is legal.

I think people need to wake up, and NASA needs to realize that only those smoking pot will believe what they tell us.

So did Howard Huhges until he went bat # crazy. Mental illness can strike anytime so maybe Elon needs to take a lesson from thr past and not turn into Howard Hughes

I don't know how long that NASA chief is going to be the NASA chief.
You only do this to enemies you want to destroy.
Otherwise you sort it out in private.
Speaking out publicly like this is actually worse than what he is complaining about in terms of behaviour.
Elon can be a real cool guy, and that is exactly what he was doing.

Am I remembering wrong, or didn't Musk explicitly state during the Joe Rogan interview (in which he took a single puff of a joint) that it was the first time he smoked weed in his life (or at least a very long time)?
