As if the news of Tesla boss Elon Musk smoking pot live on air has not been bizarre enough, this reaction trumps all others.
The reports have reached us from Turkey, more precisely the town of Balıkesir. There, the chief of the local transport operator said they would not longer want to cooperate with Tesla due to the CEO having set a “negative example for the youth” by smoking a joint in public.
But not much will be lost for Tesla in this case. Apparently, the Turkish company had issued an invitation to the CEO. Yet, the deal they had in mind would have included delivery of 180 electric buses – never mind Tesla is not making those.
