Nasa killjoy vows to stop Elon Musk from smoking weed live on the internet

The day Elon Musk smoked weed on the Joe Rogan show has become an internet milestone easily as important as the fateful moment when Ed Balls tweeted out his own name.

Now a joyless Nasa administrator has said the world will ‘not be seeing’ the billionaire blazing spliffs ever again.

Jim Bridenstine has lectured Musk about why getting stoned online is not ‘appropriate behaviour’ and has managed to get the free-thinking tech mogul to promise to be a good boy.

‘I will tell you that was not helpful, and that did not inspire confidence, and the leaders of these organizations need to take that as an example of what to do when you lead an organization that’s going to launch American astronauts,’ Bridenstine told reporters, according to The Atlantic.

While it’s perfectly legal to smoke weed in in California, it’s still frowned upon by the stuffy suits who run things.

According to a report in the Washington Post, Musk’s sensimilla session prompted tough action.

In an interview with the paper, Nasa’s associate administrator for human exploration, William Gerstenmaier, confirmed that the agency is undertaking a safety review of SpaceX and Boeing as a result of Musk’s proclivities.

Of these two firms, only SpaceX is run by Elon, but both companies are contractors of Nasa.

The review will examine the ‘safety culture’ at each company and look at things like the hours that employees work, leadership and management styles as well as drugs policies for both companies.

‘If I see something that’s inappropriate, the key concern to me is what is the culture that led to that inappropriateness and is NASA involved in that,’ said Nasa administrator Jim Bridenstine.

‘As an agency, we’re not just leading ourselves, but our contractors, as well. We need to show the American public that when we put an astronaut on a rocket, they’ll be safe.’

SpaceX responded with a statement: ‘Human spaceflight is the core mission of our company.

‘There is nothing more important to SpaceX than this endeavour, and we take seriously the responsibility that NASA has entrusted in us to safely and reliably carry American astronauts to and from the International Space Station.’

Meanwhile, Boeing said that it ‘ensures the integrity, safety and quality of our products, our people and their work environment. As NASA’s trusted partner since the beginning of human spaceflight, we share the same values and are committed to continuing our legacy of trust, openness and mission success.’
