Air Force is trying to determine what to do about Elon Musk’s pot smoking

The US Air Force is trying to figure out how to deal with civilian contractors who have their “heads in the clouds,” thanks to SpaceX head Elon Musk and a little bit of marijuana.

Musk recently raised some uniformed eyebrows after he smoked marijuana on a live-cast video, a big no-no for anyone with a government security clearance.

As CEO of SpaceX, it is unknown is Musk actually possesses a security clearance, but it’s a matter the Air Force is willing to invest time and money into figuring out.

An Air Force spokesperson, in a statement to CNBC, said: “We will need time to determine the facts and the appropriate process to handle the situation.”

Musk’s marijuana consumption took place on Joe Rogan’s podcast- an incident that temporarily dunked Tesla’s stock value by about 9 percent, though the company has since begun making a recovery.

Sources familiar with the incident claim that the USAF is opening an investigation.
