"It's perfectly legal, but you probably can not because of all the stockholders, do you?" Asked Rogan, offering him a whiff;

"I know that a lot of people like cannabis, but for me it does not encourage creativity," he replied to Rogen's question whether cannabis intake was not the same as coffee consumption. "I like doing things and being efficient, and I think cannabis does the opposite of a cup of coffee," he said.
Whether the cannabis effect smoked or not, a few minutes after the JDC's aspiration, Rogen and Musk came to discuss the importance of spreading love in the world. "Maybe you'll come up with a machine that will spread love?" Rogen wondered, and the two laughed (The full program is here).
