The most-watched episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast to date is episode 1169, featuring Tesla CEO Elon Musk. This particular episode garnered significant attention, not only because viewers were eager to hear from the serial entrepreneur about his latest ventures, but also because Musk did something quite unconventional for a tech billionaire — he smoked weed on camera.

Indeed, Musk's 2018 on-air act quickly became headline material for a variety of news outlets, ranging from CNN and BBC to FOX Business. Furthermore, it ignited a flurry of memes across social media platforms.

However, this stunt wasn't without consequences for Musk, who currently holds the title of the world's richest person with a net worth of $204.1 billion.

During a 2022 interview on the "Full Send” podcast, Musk shared the aftermath of his appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, revealing, “The consequences for me and for SpaceX were actually not good, because [weed] is federally illegal and SpaceX had federal contracts.”

As a result, Musk found himself subjected to a series of drug tests.
