Last night, Elon Musk took a break from pissing people off on Twitter to smoke some weed with comedian Joe Rogan on his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience. Towards the end of their lengthy interview — which covered everything from electric planes to solar energy — Musk and Rogan shared a spliff and mused on the current state of like, industry, man. It didn’t seem like either of them actually got high (there were no drug-induced conversations about the hyperloop), but watching Musk’s weak-ass puff is pretty funny regardless.

The smoke sesh began about two hours into the interview, when a semi-bored Musk started playing with the tchotchkes on Rogan’s desk. Musk picked up a box of some kind, and Rogan said, “I got that in Mexico. I was hoping it holds joints.” The Tesla CEO continued to play with the box, prompting Rogan to show him the many things you can fit inside. “Try to put a joint in there and close it,” said Rogan. “You can fit like one, one blunt.”

Much to Musk’s surprise, Rogan pulled out a spliff and lit it. “So is that a joint? Or is it a cigar?” asked Musk with “Would a nark say this?” feigned innocence (I refuse to believe that he’s really that dumb). “It’s marijuana inside of tobacco,” said Rogan. “So it’s like pot-tobacco pies… I think I tried one once,” replied Musk. When Rogan joked that Musk shouldn’t reveal any more because his “stockholders” would get angry, Musk’s entire attitude changed. “I mean, it’s legal, right?” asked a defiant Musk. The CEO carefully inspected the joint (he sniffed it!) before taking a very small puff, and afterwards, he shrugged when he didn’t feel anything — inadvertently creating the GIF of the century.

Rogan decided to give Musk a little weed history lesson. “The combination of tobacco and marijuana is wonderful,” he said. “First turned onto it by Charlie Murphy, and then reignited by Dave Chappelle.” They then turned their attention to the larger cultural attitude surrounding drugs, particularly alcohol, which Musk said “is pretty grandfathered in” to the world. “It’s a drug that gets a bad rap,” Rogan said about alcohol. “Because you just have a little, it’s great … The real worry is people who can’t handle it. Like they’re real worried about people who can’t handle cars that can go 0 to 60 in 1.9 seconds, or anything.” Musk’s response to Rogan’s long-winded explanation? “Fine,” he said.

If you’re interested in watching Musk and Rogan share a spliff, fast-forward to the 2:09:25 minute mark in the interview above.

24 Happy 420 Memes and GIFs for Those Observing National Weed Day

The internet knows how to celebrate.

On the dankest of holidays, pot lovers celebrate in a variety of styles. It’s a day for smoking, vaping, and baking, for example. It’s day to espouse the medicinal benefits of the non-psychoactive CBD, while also enjoying the THC. It’s also a day when states consider legalization and businesses consider regulation. And it’s a great day for memes.

There is still some debate as to how the number 420 became synonymous with smoking pot, with most theories surrounding the legacies of artists like Bob Marley and The Grateful Dead. Regardless of its cloudy origins, April 20 has become a holiday in its own right.

Weed continues to be a major focal point for online sales, for medical research, and for progressive policy. Because of this, the holiday collects new traditions each year, but April 20 continues to be a day for great memes. Here are some of this year’s finest, with a few classics, to help ring in the happiest of holidays.
