One Of The Most Famous Scientists Alive Has Surprising Comments About Elon Musk Smoking Weed

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson made it clear with some recent comments that he had no problem with Elon Musk smoking some weed.

The head of Tesla made headlines after he ripped it on Joe Rogan’s podcast.

Don’t expect Tyson to jump up and pile on Musk’s decision to smoke up with Rogan.

“Can they leave him alone? Let the man get high if he wants to get high … He’s the only game in town. He’s the best thing we’ve had since Thomas Edison,” Tyson told TMZ when asked about the event. (RELATED: 

Here’s how I think most people probably reacted to Tyson’s comments.

Any outrage directed toward Musk is completely unnecessary and stupid. The man is a billionaire, a visionary, an inventor and one of the smartest minds on the planet. If he wants to smoke a little bit with Joe Rogan, then so be it. I couldn’t care less. I just want him to keep inventing stuff. If that means he has to smoke a little weed, I am willing to accept the terms of the situation.

Now, it’d be much different if he was a bum getting high nonstop, but we all know that’s not the case. How about we all just chill out a little bit, and let Musk live his life.
