Elon Musk hates drugs now, apparently
It’s a weird reversal – he’s been talking drugs for years!
Elon Musk apparently thinks drugs aren’t cool anymore.
In his, uh, varied appearance to the Wall Street newspaperCool-sounding CEO summit, the founder of SpaceX said, among other things, that “drugs probably make you age older.”
“I don’t think dropping acid makes you age less,” Musk said in response to a seemingly offhand question about psychedelics and aging.
Back in real life, of course, scientists have linked psychedelic drug use to a lower incidence of health problems, including heart disease and diabetes.
This is also, it should be noted, the kind of response that only a terminal nerd who witnesses things like “WSJ CEO Summit ”would give – because seriously, who is concerned if taking psychedelics makes you age? The planet is DIE, and so are you !!
But it also indicates an apparent shift in Musk’s thinking about drugs, which he seemed to endorse just a few months ago.
As Highlights reported end of SeptemberMusk said in an interview with the CodeCon tech conference that he believes people should be “open” to taking hallucinogens.
“I think in general people should be open to psychedelics,” he told Ronan Levy, president of psychedelic therapy company Field Trip Health.
Musk later added that he expects more and more psychedelics to become legal in the years to come.
“As the new generation comes into political power,” he said, “I think we will see greater receptivity to the benefits of psychedelics. “
This was not, of course, Musk’s first trip down the ego path of death.
The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX has both talked about and used mind-altering drugs in a headline fashion for years now, from reports that the Tesla’s board was concerned about its use of Ambien during that infamous time, he (badly) smoked a big joint on Joe Rogan’s podcast.
And that’s without going into all the times he explicitly tweeted or obliquely on drugs, no matter when he joked about Tesla’s stock price hitting $ 420 and sicced the Securities and Exchange Commission on itself in the wake or the rapper of time Azealia Banks alleged he tweeted while under acid.
Maybe now that the reality of his separation from electronic artist Grimes has set in, Musk is no longer interested in drugs to look cool – or maybe, just maybe, that he’s a fucking narcissus and always has been.
