Another strike for Elon Musk? The tech billionaire is again making the headlines for his eccentric, rockstar ways. Musk has always been protected as an unconventional genius by several peers. But this time, things may have gone too far. Due to the severity of his drug consumption, Elon Musk is starting to look like a liability.
People close to Elon Musk have expressed discomfort with his drug consumption. In the past, Elon Musk has been open about his experience with mind-altering substances. During his appearance on ‘The Joe Rogan Experience,’ the Tesla CEO shocked the world by openly smoking with the host. But the current reports are a lot more than a friendly drug use among friends.
Elon Musk Reportedly Has A Serious Drug Problem
The Wall Street Journal has come out with a story about Elon Musk‘s wild drug use. The publication has learned from many of Musk’s associates about the tech billionaire’s reckless partying ways. Tesla’s founder has been allegedly abusing illegal drugs such as LSD, cocaine, ecstasy, and ketamine. Tesla and SpaceX board members say that the drug habit has come to the point of extreme embarrassment.
Elon Musk’s use of drugs and partying ways is leaving the board members’ faith in their leader shaky at best. Incidents such as slurred speeches and dubious tweets have made matters worse for Musk. According to the published piece, former member Linda Johnson Rice left Tesla after growing sick of Musk’s erratic behavior.
There have been reports of Tesla Motors Chairman Robyn Denholm approaching Kimbal Musk to get his brother Elon some much-needed help. Alex Spiro, an attorney for the billionaire, defended his client against the piece by confirming he is “regularly and randomly drug tested at SpaceX and has never failed a test.”

Nothing seems to bother Elon Musk. As always, the former Twitter (now X) CEO was prepared to make a case for himself. The 52-year-old entrepreneur went online to slam The Wall Street Journal and state facts. The post says, “After that one puff with Rogan, I agreed, at NASA’s request, to do 3 years of random drug testing. Not even trace quantities were found of any drugs or alcohol. @WSJ is not fit to line a parrot cage for bird.”
