Tesla erupts in chaos after senior executives leave, Musk tokes up

Morton, who joined the firm four weeks ago, said he was leaving because "the level of public attention placed on the company, as well as the pace within the company, have exceeded my expectations".

Overall, Morton appears to have parted ways with Tesla amicably, stating that he still believes in the company's overall mission, as well as its future prospects.

On Friday, the head of Tesla's Human Resources department, Gabrielle Toledano, announced she would not return from a leave scheduled in June.

Shares of Tesla fell Friday morning.

He and Musk discussed pot being legal in California.

But McNealy said that life at the helm of a big company - particularly one that has relied so heavily upon government subsidies and tax dollars - can be very stressful.

The latest drop in Tesla's stock has caused Consumer Edge analyst James Albertine to call for the company to appoint another senior leader to support Elon Musk.

Tesla has long faced frequent executive turnover as the company faces intense pressure to succeed.

The billionaire this week labelled the cave diver a "child rapist" in a rambling email to reporters - prompting the Brit to reveal he is planning to sue Musk in three different countries.




Musk asks, "Is that a joint?"

Shortly after smoking, Musk looks at his phone and laughs, telling Rogan he was getting texts from friends asking why he was smoking weed during the interview. "Every now and again I get drawn in and it's not good, you can make some mistakes".

It's not clear whether the reshuffling of executives goes quite that far, but it does address a vacuum that had been developing at the top of the company as several top executives have recently left.

Prominent short-seller Andrew Left has sued Tesla and Musk, saying in his proposed class-action complaint on Thursday that Musk's issuance of materially false and misleading information related to his abandoned plan harmed both short-sellers and those hoping the stock would rise.

The billionaire entrepreneur addressed his tumultuous year in an emotional interview with The New York Times in August, in which he admitted he was experiencing the "most hard and painful year" of his career.

Chief accounting officer Dave Morton gave notice on Tuesday that he was resigning less than a month into the job, according to a filing.

And some, in true Twitter fashion, used the occasion for sarcasm.

Musk had previously apologised for his comments about Mr Unsworth, who helped with the globally-documented rescue of a young football team from caves in Thailand, but repeated the claims this week.

Rogan described it as marijuana inside tobacco, and asked if Musk had ever tried it.
