Well, I'm sure you remember the time Elon Musk smoked a blunt on Joe Rogan's podcast and it went completely viral. 

After this, it caused a kind of trouble for him and his companies, SpaceX and Tesla. So, he apologized in a mass email to SpaceX employees, saying "SpaceX maintains a drug-free workplace."


Turns out, it really isn't. The Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada was found out to be not drug-free at all. 

According to the reports obtained from police in Storey County, Nevada, the work-space of Gigafactory is actually full of drugs such as meth, heroin, and cocaine left open by workers.

Police found a white rock substance in a clear plastic container on the warehouse floor and tested the substance only to find out that it was cocaine. 

Another thing police found was a small brown square in a greenish cellophane bag. It was titled "Possible Heroin," by one report. 

Also, drugs aren't the only thing that Tesla is accused of having. A report says that a Tesla commercial truck hit a horse and injured the animal so badly that an officer had to kill it with a shotgun. 

Well, Tesla and SpaceX have crazily advanced technologies that may lead us to think they can't be done with a sober mind. But is it ethical or safe, that's the most significant point.
