Elon Musk’s security clearance reportedly under review due to pot use

Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s security clearance is allegedly being reviewed by the Pentagon after he was seen smoking marijuana on a podcast last September. Musk has a federal security clearance because SpaceX provides satellite launch services to the US government. There has been no official comment around the same.

He didn't even inhale. The nerd was trying to be cool. If this happens you should pull every Congress member that has admitted to smoking pot, Kamila, etc.

I’m pretty sure pot is still illegal on a federal level. I know while I was in the marines I wasn’t allowed to smoke pot despite the fact that I was stationed in a state where it was legal. If you want any kind of federal government job or clearance you generally need to avoid recreational drugs (except alcohol). But we’ll see how they treat Musk as SpaceX is pretty vital to NASA at the moment and Trump wants to avoid using Russia to launch our astronauts into space.

That is wrong. The government is wrong. Just like the law. That's why it's being overturned in all these states and there will be more.
