Elon Musk has claimed that he got randomly ‘drug tested’ after appearing on Joe Rogan’s podcast.
The Tesla CEO was on the popular audio show back in 2018 and the episode went viral after he ‘smoked weed’ with the host. However, it caused him a lot of backlash at the time.
Opening up about what happened on the Nelk Boys and John Shahidi podcast, he said: “I did get a lot of backlash because it’s still federally illegal.

However, he currently has bigger worries on his mind, as ‘The World’s Richest Man’ is currently in an ongoing court battle with Twitter after he backed out of a huge deal to buy the company.

However, in July, he withdrew his bid which led to Twitter suing him.
