Elon Musk Tweets About Marijuana, Gets Trolled

The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX stated the obvious when he commented that it wasn’t fair to incarcerate people for possessing weed.

Elon Musk, billionaire and new father to a son with an unpronounceable name, tweeted Saturday that he’d get into a lot of trouble for voicing the following opinion: “Selling weed literally went from major felony to essential business (open during pandemic) in much of America & yet many are still in prison. Doesn’t make sense, isn’t right.”

Although Musk’s statement is true, it’s not exactly controversial, especially when you consider some of his past tweets. Twitter users took this as an opportunity to troll Musk, a relished activity among internet users.

Back in March, when COVID-19 forced cities into lockdown, marijuana was deemed an essential business in states like Vermont, California, Oregon, Colorado and more, all with differing degrees of guidelines for people interested in making medical or recreational purchases.
