Tesla rocked by latest exec shakeup Musk's behavior on webcast

But there were other factors at work: Tesla reported that its chief accounting officer, Dave Morton, was leaving the company after just a month on the job. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is now investigating that assertion, and Musk quickly backtracked on the plan. "This caused me to reconsider my future". Marijuana is legal in California, so Musk won't have to worry about law enforcement agencies knocking on his door, but it won't do much to help Tesla's already volatile stocks.

Tesla shares ended the day off 6 percent and are at their lowest level since April.

Musk's behaviour has raised concerns about his leadership and several Wall Street analysts have called for the company to appoint a strong deputy to prop up Tesla's operations and standing with investors.

The stoned conversation between Rogan and Musk sounded like typical liberal arts college dorm room fodder, despite taking place between an MMA bro and the world's richest edge lord.

The smoke session caught lots of attention on social media Thursday night, and rattled some Tesla investors early Friday morning. But Tesla has said that the departures are at a rate typical of any large company.

Toledano, one of the top executives at the company, reports directly to Musk. "We believe Musk attempted to manipulate the price of Tesla securities with false and misleading tweets, in a directed effort to harm short-sellers".
