The footage has not only been turned into a meme and a GIF, but also inspired a Photoshop battle.
Musk, who was handed the joint by Rogan, had asked if it was a joint or a cigar before being told that it was a cigarette comprising marijuana—legal in California—and tobacco.
When queried if he had tried it before, Musk replies, “Yeah I think I tried one once,” before breaking out in laughter. Rogan continues, “You probably can’t because of stockholders,” to which Musk responds, “I mean it’s legal right?”
The entire two-and-a-half hour interview includes discussions about electric airplanes, AI, Tesla and other issues.
The weed smoking, however, which starts at the 2:10:00 minute mark in the live streamed video below, has sparked an amusing battle of Photoshop wits over on the Reddit thread ‘/r/photoshopbattles’ that includes a reference to Musk’s The Boring Company’s flamethrower.
